Therese Aune from Norway plays dreamy cinematic music, drawing inspiration both from pop music and classical minimalists. She is known for her atmospheric piano playing and powerful expressive voice. A little orchestra consisting of violin, cello, tuba and drums often brilliantly accompanies her. Together they create evocative soundscapes that can be subdued and quiet, or grow big and heavy. So far the music has taken Aune to festivals like By:larm, The Oya Festival (NO), Popkomm (DE), Berlin Festival (DE) and Iceland Airwaves (ICE). Most recently in 2013 she has been booked for Austin’s fabled SXSW festival. She has also toured in Germany and Switzerland supporting Norwegian Einar Stray. Her debut album, Billowing Shadows, Flickering Light was recorded with the Icelandic producer Sturla Mio Þórisson (Owen Pallett, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy). It was released on the Norwegian indie label Riot Factory in 2012. Red Eye Transit is working on her first US release with her for 2013.
Therese Aune’s band consists of Hanna Furuseth (violin), Katrine Schiøtt (cello), Ida Løvli Hidle (accordion), Heida Karine Mobeck (tuba) and Hans Hulbækmo (drums).
