The House Festival – Briand/Bille/Stefansson Trio (DK/SE)
Modern arrangements of famous jazz standards
Briand/Bille/Stefansson Trio consists of three young musicians who met at Skurup Folkhögskola in Sweden, where they studied jazz.
The trio plays modern arrangements of famous jazz standards. They focus on improvisation and being in the moment with their audience. Bringing the music to new places but without sacrificing tradition.
Over the course of the year, the trio as built a strong musical and interpersonal relationship, which is reflected in their music.
The House is a new festival in Aarhus that takes place in an old, rustical workshop that used to be a smithy in the town’s gasworks. Here, there will be a lineup of musicians who have been featured based on their musical ideas and accomplishments rather than their genre. Some of the tunes will be composed and others improvised. The idea is to allow genres and art forms to inspire each other.
