A flagship band of the Hubro record label, Splashgirl has established and are continually developing their very own music - drone-jazz - that draws inspiration from post-rock, ambient, electronica and acoustic jazz. Through six highly acclaimed albums – Doors. Keys. (AIM 2007), Arbor (Hubro 2009), Pressure (Hubro 2011), Field Day Rituals (Hubro 2013), Hibernation (Hubro 2016) and Sixth Sense (Hubro 2018), a vast amount of concerts in Europe, USA and Japan, and collaborations with musicians like Jan Bang, Eyvind Kang, Stian Westerhus, Mari Kvien Brunvoll, Randall Dunn and Timothy Mason, they have made a mark as an innovative piano trio with a truly unique sound.

Don't miss this rare performance by this stellar trio, consisting of three of the most important voices on the contemporary scenes for improvised and experimental music! Miha Zadnikar has written following about them:

“We are unsure whether the music of the trio that will perform in the second part of the evening 'comes from heaven or hell', writes the ArtActs Festival. Agnel tickles the ivory, dives deep into the piano’s gut and finally offers us a special voyage to space. Duthoit first screams, cries, gargles and curses, then grabs her clarinet only to wring and stretch it, producing sounds which, eyes closed, we cannot discern from her own voice. And finally comes Castelló, an amazing sound designer, adding electroacoustic pearls to this masterful ménage à trois. Witchcraft!”

Isabelle Duthoit – clarinet, voice
