Mette Rasmussen Trio North

The Danish Mette Rasmussen is probably considered the most radical saxophonist at the moment. Spending the last few years touring almost exclusively around the globe, she has a head full of ideas. She plumbs her instrument with skillful techniques, going to the edge of sonic possibilities, her palette ranging from narrative sounds to expressive outbursts. She "moves in a field that can be delineated by the ecstatic of Albert Ayler, the violence of Peter Brötzmann, the abstract spirit of Anthony Braxton, and the sonic obsession of Evan Parker" (Gregor Dotzauer). In addition to her performances with Fire! she has played with Rudi Mahall, Axel Dörner and Alan Silva, among others.

Award-winning Norwegian bassist, improviser, composer and bandleader Ingebrigt Håker Flaten has been at the forefront of modern creative music both in his native Norway and internationally since the early 1990s. He is perhaps best known as a founding member of the Scandinavian supergroup Atomic. In countless collaborations, bands and projects, Håker Flaten has combined the explorations and experiments of post-free jazz with the deft use of attributes from many other idioms.

Drummer Chris Corsano is arguably considered one of the greats of his craft. As one of the pioneers of free improvisation and avant-rock in the '90s, he has developed a percussive language with extraordinary range. Through collaborations with Paul Flaherty, Joe McPhee, Evan Parker, Sir Richard Bishop, Heather Leigh Murray, Jim O'Rourke, Björk, Ghédalia Tazartès, Merzbow and Jandek, he has developed into a consistent and charismatic virtuoso; yet for all his unbridled energy, subtlety and virtuosity never fall by the wayside.
