Following up on its acclaimed 2012 debut “Reminder (Cuneiform)”, which established the quartet as a bold new voice on the international jazz scene, the young Oslo-based band delivers a stellar second album that makes a mighty big musical statement.
Led by double bassist, vocalist, and songwriter Ellen Andrea Wang, she recently recieved the 2013 TONO prize, category “Årets Utfordrer” (Innovator), for the song “Call Me” from Pixel debut album. Wang together with Jonas Kilmork Vemøy (trumpet), Harald Lassen (sax) and Jon Audun Baar (drums) further refines its fervently creative vision with “We Are All Small Pixels”, a genre-smashing manifesto that translates ancient spiritual insight into the digital age.
Using all acoustic instruments and the line-up of the classic, piano-less, “modern jazz” quartet plus vocals, Pixel combine the sounds of modern jazz with the energy and attitude of rock musicians performing catchy, indie-pop songs.
This is definitely jazz, but it’s jazz that rock and pop audiences can relate to. There are other jazz bands who do “cross-over” music, but whenever they do, they pick up electric instruments, drum machines, synthesizers, etc. No other group is doing it all acoustically with a traditional jazz line up, which makes Pixel’s “jazz-into-pop” music unique and impressive.
Pixel won the UK Music Video Awards 2013 “Best International Dance Video” for “Call Me”.
Together in Pixel, these 4 talented musicians form one of the fastest rising and most innovative ensembles in Scandinavia’s flourishing jazz scene. Performing at Scandinavia’s jazz festivals and clubs before ever-increasing numbers of fans, recording albums that garner international critical acclaim, winning numerous awards, the young Pixels are poised to take the international jazz stage by storm.
