We have previously worked with clarinetist and composer, Kristine Tjøgersen of Ensemble neoN, and after a very successful musical meeting, we agreed to follow up on it with a larger project including four members of the ensemble.


We are very happy to be working with such an exciting ensemble and fantastic musicians, and are looking very much forward to get started on the project in mid 2017!


It will be very interesting work to blend the sonic palette and sonorous possibilities of the added flute, clarinet, violin and cello with Parallax's already well established universe; and we will spend a lot of time on the process of developing the material through compositional sketches, interplay and improvisation, and research our way to finding a sound which again takes our music on a new and unknown journey.


In 2018 - celebrating Parallax' 10th anniversary - we will release an album and go on tour. We are so very excited about this collaboration! Good times :-)


Ensemble neoN is a young, leading and fresh Norwegian ensemble for contemporary music, and has already won one Spelemannspris (Norwegian Grammy) for their album "neoN".
