Laurna Røde

Laurna Røde carves out a soundscape from silence and chaos.

Video from Atalante where we surprisingly played in darkness most of the time!

With electric and acoustic guitars, EBows and field recordings we create atmospheres and sonic scenes – a fully acoustic drone music hovering between consonance and dissonance. The extended sounds in combination with minimal movements is an intense and at the same time peaceful sound experience where frequencies and harmonies are in focus. We started playing together at the festival Verona Risuona in April 2013 and have so far been playing at festivals, theaters, art spaces and fashion shows in Italy, Sweden, Norway and Iceland. During the summer of 2014 Laurna Røde had the great pleasure of touring around Iceland with Ragnheiður Sigurðardóttir Bjarnarson. We took a break during 2015 but had a great new beginning in April 3, 2016, playing in Berlin with the german composer and musician Ben Lauber. Laurna Røde is David Sabel and Helena Persson.
