Vilde & Inga is a string duo playing acoustic free improvised music, featuring violin and double bass. By exploring non-traditional approaches to the instruments, the duo greatly expands their timbre palette. The wide horizons of colour allow the music to develop slowly and organically, yet with a keen underlying sense of compositional form. Vilde & Inga released their debut album Makrofauna on ECM in 2013. Their second album will be released in spring 2017 under the Norwegian label SOFA. In October 2016 Vilde & Inga received the Lindeman Prize for Young Musicians.
