Folk meets Contemporary meets Improv: This band is a collaboration between the trio Parallax and hardanger fiddler Anne Hytta. Parallax’ foundation is in improv and contemporary music, and they have toured all over the world with their own distinctive, attentive music through more than 10 years. Anne’s music is deeply founded in the Norwegian traditional music; a brilliant musician with an open-minded approach to other expressions and her own personal signature in music. She was awarded the prize ”Folk musician of the year” in Norway 2018, and has won two Norwegian Grammies for her music.   

In 2018 Parallax+Hytta released their album "Skogen"  (”The Forest") on digital platforms. Now it is released as part of a double CD together with a live recording of the same material from Tomba Emanuelle in Oslo. 

Within the improvising music of this band, there is always a predetermined framework. The transitions between the composed and improvised are sliding and we seek to balance the linear and melody based with open and abstract soundscapes. Even though one can say that the trio Parallax moves within jazz/contemporary music and that Anne Hytta is a folk musician, we are not trying to make a fusion of styles, but to create a unique expression that is the result of our backgrounds, references and preferences.
