Pinquins is a border-crossing and experimental trio based in Oslo. The trio was established in 2008 and consists today of Sigrun Rogstad Gomnæs, Jennifer Torrence and Ane Marthe Sørlien Holen. They are all trained as performing percussionists, and have each worked as freelancers in many different musical contexts. The trio's main focus is contemporary music, and their aim is to challenge the audience and expand the format they work within. They work in close collaboration with composers and performers within contemporary music as well as in other genres. With its highly visual repertoire and its unique stage presence, the trio has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative and leading ensembles on the Norwegian contemporary music scene.
