Tess Said So
Tess Said So is the creative partnership between Rasa and percussionist Will Larsen. Adopting a pop sensibility to a classical format, they write and perform all their own material, influenced by a shared interest in new music and blurring the lines that define musical genre, infusing their sound with pop, jazz, ambience, minimalism, indeterminism and electronica.
"Every screening of Nosferatu should bear their brilliant score."
