Duos that I fortunately play with on a regular basis:
Siril Malmedal Hauge & Kjetil Mulelid
Blues and Bells
"It is easy to hear that the years of collaboration between the two have led to a very special chemistry. Malmedal Hauge's clear voice and Mulelid's airy piano playing go hand in hand."
Siril and Kjetil have made themselves known in the Norwegian music scene in recent years. With active touring, a Norwegian grammy award nomination, and several album releases praised by the worldwide press, they have distinguished themselves as a bold voice representing the Norwegian music in the 21st century.
Their album "Blues and Bells" is out on Grappa Musikforlag.

Malm & Eng
Malm & Eng is a duo collaboration between Siril Malmedal Hauge and Marte Røyeng. Both musicians, composers and lyricists. Together they have played concerts in Norway and Europe with their concept "two mandolins - two voices". In 2022, they made their first longer collaborative piece of music called "STUP".
An exploration of paper and music.
"STUP" was a 25-minute performance with music and visual theatre, played at the "Collective Illusions festival" in Oslo. The musical and visual related to a common score, and we wanted to develop attentive listening between musicians, manipulators and an audience in free movement. A large sheet of paper hanging from the ceiling, which was gradually set in fiercely motion by three stage workers/manipulators, became an instrument.
Music written by Malm & Eng (Marte Røyeng and Siril Malmedal Hauge) and visual theatre by Ellen Jerstad & Vega Drake Carlsson. Featuring the percussion duo Rattlebelles (Nora Sjøgren and Ylva Bråten Rian) and performer Victoria Gulliksen.
