Welcome to the fourth FRIM concert of the season which is also part of the Stockholm Jazz Festival! Tonight we have two really amazing duos on the program for you.


Christine Abdelnour (b. 1978) is a Lebanese sound artist based in France. After discovering improvised music in 1997, she began a process of self-taught study and sound experimentation with alto saxophone. Abdelnour has developed a unique personal language, producing sounds that are close to those of electroacoustic music but on a purely acoustic instrument. She approaches sound as a malleable material, rich in concrete textures which combine breath, silence and countless acoustic distortions. She has developed extended techniques and complex patterns of sound production, exploring the microtonal aspects of the saxophone and its high-pitched tones. Abdelnour has toured and worked with collaborators including Ryan Kernoa, Andy Moor, Magda Mayas, Pascal Battus, Andrea Neumann, Bonnie Jones, David Stackenäs, Raymond Strid, Patrick Thormann, Sven-Åke Johansson and many more.

Joachim Nordwall (b. 1975) is based in Gothenburg, Sweden. He has a long background in the Swedish experimental music scene, starting out with recordings with the psych-drone duo Alvars Orkester as a teenager in 1988. His early interest in psychic tension created by sound is now as ever present in his music. His ”Soul Music” album for Entr’acte shows his deep interest in circular rhythms, analogue synth loops and mind expanding experiments. Nordwall has also released his music on labels like Ash International and Hospital Productions. From 1999-2005 he was sweating with the avant punk rock trio Kid Commando and when that stopped he created the ritual drone rock group The Skull Defekts. Nordwall also runs iDEAL Recordings since 1998 and is collaborating with artists like Mika Vainio, Mats Gustafsson, Leif Elggren, Mark Wastell and John Duncan and he is a busy organizer of festivals and concert nights in Sweden and abroad.

In 2019, their so far only common release “A Higher State Of Body And Mind” was released on Firework Edition Records, the new one entitled ”New Works” is released on the same label in 2022!


After playing together for more than a decade, describing Vilde&Inga’s music as “free improvised” might be an oversimplification. Ornette Coleman said “what’s exciting is the memory you bring to the present”. This is central to how Vilde&Inga’s music is created: Always free from any pre-planned structures, yet with a dense memory-texture of shared musical explorations and moments shaping the sounding present.

By exploring nontraditional approaches to the violin and double bass, the string duo has greatly expanded their timbre palette. The wide horizons of color allow the music to develop slowly and organically. Some people hear birds, and some squeaking and brushing — others enter a ruin of classical music where they encounter a forest elf playing the blues.Vilde Sandve Alnæs and Inga Margrete Aas met during studies in Oslo in 2010. Since then they have toured regularly in Norway and internationally. In 2020 the double album How Forests Think was released on SOFA. The album was made in collaboration with the French sound technician and artist Benjamin Maumus and consists of improvisations and compositions recorded in four very different locations, both outside and inside, in the Oslo area. Their first album, Makrofauna, was released on ECM in 2014, and Silfr on the Norwegian label SOFA in 2017.

Welcome to the second FRIM concert of the season! The artists will present their latest solo work and a duo set celebrating their recent album release BAGRA.

Biliana Voutchkova is a dynamic and thoroughly engaged interdisciplinary artist, composer-performer, violinist, improvisor and curator with a truly personal, unconventional artistic language. Through the prism of listening, her early training as a classical violinist and the years of development as contemporary artist-performer, she explores states of spontaneity and intuitive resonance embodied in her multifaceted activities. Her work includes regular concert performances of original/site specific work, new music by contemporary composers often written for her, long durational and multidisciplinary performances, improvisations, compositions and installations with focus on the interconnection between inner world and sound space.
Based between Berlin and her rural residency on the black sea coast of Bulgaria, Biliana works internationally as a soloist and with renowned ensembles such as the Splitter and Trickster Orchestras, United Berlin, Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, Voutchkova/Thieke duo, Jane in Ether etc. Among her recent/current activities are concerts at Cafe Oto London, Ausland Berlin, Mixtur, Skanu Mežs, Meakusma and Ad Libitum festivals, her first institutional solo exhibition-performance at One Gallery Sofia and her curated duo series of live concerts and digital albums DUOS2022. Biliana is the founder and curator of the DARA String Festival, SHAPE+ platform artist for 2022/2023 and a recent recipient of the German Residency Stipend at Cité des Arts/Paris where she will reside for six months from October 2022.

Susana Santos Silva (photo by Joana Linda) is a Portuguese trumpeter, improviser and composer based in Stockholm, Sweden.
With a singular artistic approach that comes out of a comprehensive spectrum of influences, from classical and contemporary music to jazz and textural sound art, she is interested in stretching the possibilities of the instrument, exploring new ways of expression within music, as well as dissolving the boundaries between composition and improvisation. ‘One of the most exciting improvisers in the world’ (Downbeat), her music has been described as intoxicating, intense, beautiful, overwhelming, mesmerising, innovative, bold and creative.
Besides her solo practice, she has been working with her bands Impermanence and Life and Other Transient Storms and with collaborative projects with Kaja Draksler and Torbjörn Zetterberg – also in trio with Hampus Lindwall, Child of Illusion, Fish Wool and Hearth.
Much in demand she has been playing with an array of different bands/projects and with musicians such as Anthony Braxton, Fred Frith, Evan Parker, Joëlle Léandre, Mat Maneri, Paul Lovens, Hamid Drake, Mats Gustafsson, Lotter Anker, Sten Sandell, among many others.
Susana is now attending a Master program in Electroacoustic Composition at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
