Pixel Short Info

Pixel

Combining indie-rock energy with the improvisational flexibility of jazz, Pixel are earthy and ethereal, wistful and agressive, sensuous and pummeling.The group stands at the forefront of a rising generation of jazz players who are remaking jazz in their own image, and doing so for an audience that is hungry for something new and reflects modern day sounds in creative music.

"Pixel has been making waves in the Nordic region and other parts of Europe for the past few years with tracks from its two previous albums, We Are All Small Pixels and Reminder. The band is signed to the hip US Cuneiform label, which caters to the progressive rock and avant garde scene - very much trend setters. This might well be Pixel's global break-out album. All four members of the band are consummate performers for musicians still relatively young, but it is their group ethos and concept which marks them out from being just another interesting nordic group", Rob Mallows of London Jazz News writes in his review of Pixels new album "Golden Years".

«It's rare for a group so young to emerge with such a fully formed and distinctive concept, but Pixel seems to have accomplished just that.» is just some of the overwhelming review John Kelman from All About Jazz wrote after hearing Pixel's performance at the Stavanger Jazz Festival in 2014.

Pixel’s third album Golden Years captures the next step in the band’s own rapid evolution, following their 2014 breakthrough We Are All Small Pixels and 2012’s impressive debut Reminder. Pixel consists of bassist and vocalist Ellen Andrea Wang, drummer Jon Audun Baar, trumpeter Jonas Kilmork Vemøy and saxophonist Harald Lassen (with everyone contributing vocals).
