Continuously searching new sounds to explore, the Trio O3 approaches the contemporary repertoire with audacity, sensitivity and poetry.

The Trio O3, winner of the Supernova Competition 2018, is composed of Eugénie Defraigne (cello), Léna Kollmeier (piano) and Lydie Thonnard (flute). The three members came to know each other through their common interest in contemporary music. They decided to work together and form a trio in 2014 while discovering and playing "Vox Balaenae" by George Crumb.

Training themselves in 20th-century and improvisational music, they have been collaborating as a trio with musicians like Michel Massot, François Deppe, Vincent Royer, Mia Elezovic, Olivier Vanderschaeghe, Jean-Pol Zanutel, Eric Leleux, Toon Fret, Kim Van den Brempt and Bart Bouckaert.

In 2016, having by then established their own style and creative universe, the three musicians presented their first project "Échos de la Terre" at the Espace Senghor in Brussels. Currently, they continue to present this project at different festivals and venues in Belgium, especially at Flagey in Brussels and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Charleroi, while at the same time developing their second project, centered around new compositions from Belgian artists, created for the occasion.

In the Spring 2019, the trio won a third prize in the chamber music category of the international competition Opus organized by the Life and Art Foundation. At the same occasion, the three musicians also received the special prize for the best performance of the contemporary piece written after 1950.

With Nicolas Marchant (electronics), the Trio O3 proposes the projet O3 + 1 V.S. United in their passion for improvisation, the four artists free themselves from given codes and conventions and plunge into the heart of the single moment and the heart of sound. Using different processes of random, O3 + 1 V.S creates unique musical moments.
