The cellist Anıl Eraslan and the violinist Ruben Tenenbaum accepted positively the invitation of the bassist Vincent Posty to take over the string trio. Inspired by the classical and contemporary heritage as well as free improvisation or traditional music they create with their original compositions a music of their own. Written, improvised, in gestation, Kemik Trio’s music is the fruit of their personalities, those of three musicians who desire to free themselves from musical genres.
KEMIK's debut album is released!!! Ask for it!
Released in 1922, HÄXAN remains a stunning film by the modernity it carries. Indeed, Benjamin Christensen establishes a parallel between the medieval inquisition and worst excesses in the field of psychiatry in the early 20th century.
Blending composition and improvisation Kemik Trio offers an original and personal comment on this “UFO” among silent films.
