"Ola Høyer like others of the erudite new generation of Norwegian musicians is equally at home in a wide variety of musics including classical, jazz and experimental rock, and brings this wealth of experience and acute musicality into a very fluid and rich improvisational style. He is increasingly in demand touring regularly in Japan and the USA with his group Cortex and many other collaborations."

"Dag Erik Knedal Andersen (born 5th of November 1983) is an award winning Norwegian drummer and improviser based in Oslo.

Knedal Andersen had originally planned to become an engineer, but at the age of 16 he discovered the dubious joy of jazz and improvised music, and hence there were no turning back. After buying all the records he could lay his hands on at that time, he soon found himself studying jazz at the Conservatory of Music in Trondheim. After his graduation in 2008, he moved to Berlin for a brief period of time, before moving to Oslo to do a masters degree in improvised music at the Norwegian State Academy of Music.

Perhaps best known for his "hyperactive-take-no-prisoners" approach to drumming, he has been an ubiquitous musician on the Norwegian improvised music scene over the last couple of years, as well as touring all over Europe with groups such as SAKA and AKODE. In 2010 he received the Molde International Jazz Festival's "Talent of the year" award. In addition to his regular groups, he has performed with among others Axel Dörner, Alan Wilkinson, John Butcher, Thomas Lehn, Frode Gjerstad, Fredrik Ljungkvist, Pat Thomas, Jørgen Mathisen, Akira Sakata, Tobias Delius, Alex Ward, Dominic Lash, Rudi Mahall, Lasse Marhaug, Martin Küchen, Birgit Ulher, Maja Ratkje, John Edwards, Kjetil Møster and Ingebrigt Håker Flaten."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"We didn't see (or, more exactly, hear) this coming. How could we expect a band like The Heat Death to turn their attention to the music of Glenn Miller? But here it is, once again confirming the notion that everything is possible when coming from the Scandinavian scene.

Truth is that this quintet always had an orchestral approach, in the organization of the collective inputs and due to the doubling of instruments, Kjetil Moster playing clarinet besides his tenor saxophone and Martin Kuchen turning to the flute when not playing the alto sax, summing up with the presence of a pasting trombone (Mats Aleklint) to unite every part, but what they use to do was miles way from the swing big band Miller's sound: a free improvised music metamorphing to free jazz, sometimes with African rhythms, reminding us of Chris McGregor's Brotherhood of Breath, and sometimes with the repetitive, "motorik" balance of krautrock, not so strange when we think that Can's drummer, Jaki Liebezeit, was an original member of Alexander von Schllipenbach's Globe Unity Orchestra.

But here it is, introducing a new form to understand the problem with thermodynamic energy known by science as "the heat death". If there was a compositional factor in the way this group used to improvise, finding structures when there wasn't one, now they deal with it in a more committed way. Of course, the resulting music has few resemblances to what the Glenn Miller Orchestra continue to do until this day, but the spirit is there, exploring aspects which were implicit, but never fulfilled, with all the respect to the historic figure who conceived it. Prepare yourself to be surprised."-Clean Feed
