Established in 1999. The ensemble mainly play reindeer antlers with strings, augmented by flutes, vocals, percussion, field recordings and various acoustic instruments. Under the guidance of Jonas Qvale and with both steady and revolving membership participation of artists, musicians and performers, Hornorkesteret create a music somewhere between improv, folk and contemporary composition and theatrical and conceptual performances.
Our first album, Fjær og jern (2011), was a compilation of our best efforts mostly live, but also in the studio.
“Jehovas vinter” (december 2019) is a studio album of all new original dark folk instrumentals, and Hornorkesteret are touring to support the album in 2020.
We are available for concerts in 2020 – get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
