ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Slow is the New Fast
Slow is the New Fast is made up of young, professional musicians from the Oslo area. One of the members, Joel, originates from Växsjö, Sweden, and the rest from different parts of Norway. Lyder is from Bergen, Hans is from Vinstra in Gudbrandsdalen, Bjørn-Even is from Asker, and Tore from Oslo. This geographical diversity is encapsulated in the bands “sound”.
The ensemble was hand-picked by Lyder in 2015, with the vision to create a unique and ideal soundscape.
A strong influence of their music stems from european modern jazz and contemporary classical music. Polish composer Henryk Nikolaj Goreck and trumpeter Tomasz Stanko are important sources of inspiration.
