Tre Voci (w/ Kit Downes) // Auro EP Launch
Tre Voci present the launch of their new EP (featuring Kit Downes) on Nonclassical with an intimate gig in the beautiful Old Church in Stoke Newington. The varied programme will include works by Josquin and Ockeghem alongside music by the performers themselves as well as site-specific improvisations.
Formed in 2012, Tre Voci is comprised of Norwegian cellist Torun Sæter Stavseng and British cellists/composers Gregor Riddell and Colin Alexander. Their repertoire ranges from medieval and renaissance vocal music to new commissions and their own compositions. The trio is also focused on structured improvisation, performing with live processed electronics as well as explorations of Scandinavian folk music.
Kit Downes is a BBC Jazz Award winning, Mercury Music Award nominated, solo recording artist for ECM Records. He has toured the world with artists such as Squarepusher, Thomas Strønen, Aidan O’Rourke and Django Bates and written commissions for Cheltenham Music Festival, London Contemporary Orchestra, Stavanger Konserthus, Cologne Philharmonie, BBC Radio 3 and the Wellcome Trust.
