TINAIS Miniatures

Here you can find some short fragments of some of our repertoire to snoop around!


TINAIS — There is no air in Space — is a contemporary duo exploring the boundaries of the saxophone and voice—two instruments dependent on the power of the human breath. Co-founded by Jana De Troyer and Kelsey Cotton, TINAIS ventures into new sound worlds and spaces, specialising in the creation, performance and curation of the weird, the wild and the wonderful.

De Troyer and Cotton have performed in styles ranging from 80s synth-pop to free improvisation, and everything in between. Together they have brought their musical experience and diversity to stages throughout Europe, in acoustic and electronic configurations.

TINAIS is committed to being at the nucleus of new music, turning musical convention on its head through varying musical and performative forms; and commissioning, programming and performing music from minority and underrepresented compositional voices.

There is no air in Space is currently based in Hamburg, Germany.
