Parallel to their quartet work, they have collaborated with music luminaries including Jim O’Rourke, Otomo Yoshihide and Yumio Tanaka. In 2015 they performed “About Nature” in the Norwegian Opera House with Oslo Sinfonietta for the Ultima Festival. In that same year, they were nominated for the Nordic Council Music Prize.
