FIRE! ORCHESTRA —– ARRIVAL!

The new version of Fire! Orchestra is here!
After the previous experiences of “EXIT”, “ENTER” and “RITUAL” – it is all about to change now.
A new line-up – a new concept – a new sound – and a new piece: ARRIVAL!

The new acoustic line-up features a dominant focus on strings and clarinets. This creates a whole new sound situation and puts a new twist on the way of working with the music. Rehearsals, research, compositional and structural work will take place in the fall of 2017. Touring, recording (for Rune Grammofon, of course) and festival activities for 2018 are the next phase of the plan, with a totally new way of working in a large setting with the usual hub of the Fire! trio as the force at the creative center of it all. 
This configuration will use the experience of the previous pieces, while letting the members of this new version of the ensemble be way more active and involved in creating something unique and evolving together.
The voices of Mariam Wallentin and Sofia Jernberg will continue to be the creative frontline, with the Fire! Orchestra working in an entirely new way, even using a cover version of Robbie Basho´s “Blue Crystal Fire”.
Lines and layers of violin poetry will ARRIVE with the energy and melodic frenzy of clarinet aesthetics.
Slow modules of riff fundaments will ARRIVE with the inyourface attitude of the dedicated voices of supreme beauty.
Pointilistic piano and harmonic freedom will ARRIVE with the wild trumpet lines of high energy densities and beauty. 
It is all connected. It is all about sharing. It is all part of the ARRIVAL!
The ARRIVAL of something new.
The ARRIVAL of a new sound and colour!
The ARRIVAL of the new Fire! Orchestra
