Emmeluth’s Amoeba

Danemark/Norvège

Collective breath

Emmeluth’s Amoeba is a groundbreaking Danish/Norwegian quartet consisting of four of the most exciting musicians on the Scandinavian scene right now. The group has toured extensively for the past 4 years, including live concerts at Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Nattjazz (Bergen jazz festival), Summer Bummer Festival (Antwerp) to name a few. With creative music that moves through characters of free jazz to chamber music like shapes with fierce energy it is hard to be left untouched.

Pianist Christian Balvig has made a mark both as a musician leading his own group and playing with the colossal danish supergroup Efterklang as well as composing music for large orchestras such as Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra.

Guitarist Karl Bjorå is a strong voice on the scene of improvised music and has recorded and toured extensively with his own groups Megalodon Collective, Yes Deer and Aperture for years all around Europe, USA and Asia.

Drummer Ole Mofjell is a force of nature, playing with Thurston Moore in duo format, as well as touring with ECM recording legends Jon Balke and Norwegian Powerhouse guitarist Hedvig Mollestad.

Last but not least, leader and main composer for Emmeluth’s Amoeba, Signe Emmeluth has made a strong imprint on the scene during the last 5 years playing with Kresten Osgood as well as being a part of Trondheim Jazzorkester, and Gard Nilssen’s Supersonic Orchestra.
