Håkon Thelin is a double bass player and composer. He performs with the ensembles Oslo Sinfonietta and POING, and also regularly with Ensemble Modern and musikFabrik. At present, his main interest lies in the combination of contemporary music and folk music, and in the sonic exploration of harmonics and multiphonics on the double bass. This is expressed in his own compositions as well as in collaboration with folk singer Unni Løvlid.
