Amorsima TrioDenton, TX
Amorsima Trio is comprised of violinist Mia Detwiler, violist Michael Capone, and cellist Kourtney Newton. The three met while members of the University of North Texas Nova Ensemble. Through their shared passion for new music, they founded Amorsima Trio in 2016 with the goal of performing works from the last fifty years and expanding the string trio repertoire through a commitment to commissioning new works, many of which include instrument preparation, improvisation, theatrical elements, and electronics. In 2019, they were ensemble-in-residence at Tarrant County College in Fort Worth, Texas and were a featured ensemble at the 4th International CEMICircles Festival of Experimental Music and Intermedia. Upcoming projects include performing as a featured ensemble at Electric LaTex and a residency at Mise-en Place as collaborators in the Ha-Mirza Project. Their name translates from Greek to “that which is not fate” and was inspired by the Xenakis work Morsima-Amorsima.
