Lars Kristian Lia / Sondre Kvingedal

Lars Kristian Lia & Sondre Kvingedal is a duo based in Kristiansand, with a passion for improvised music. Focusing on textures in sound they express themselves with the use of extended trumpet techniques and extreme sound processing to create a living, interesting, melancholy soundscape.

Sondre Kvingedal is a trumpet player currently studying at UiA. In his collaboration with Lars Kristian he explores the sonic possibilities in mixing the traditional sound of the trumpet with the new sound of live sampling.

Lars Kristian Lia is a music producer and artist with a background as a guitarist and producer of pop-music. In the last year he has gotten a feel for the realm of contemporary music. Together with Sondre he will experiment with live sampling and improvisation.
