New voices: Aufles' Turbomodul
This year, Kongsberg Jazzfestival will also present young musicians under the monicker ”New Voices”. There will be a double concert with drummer Axel Skalstad and pianist Håvard Aufles – both originating from the prolific jazz scene in Kongsberg.
The pianist Håvard Aufles call his band Aufles’ Turbomodul. It originated at the jazz program at NTNU in the autumn of 2016. These musicians are not afraid to cross boundaries and draw inspiration from different genres, both rock, popular, classical and noise – but all the time with a firm foot in the jazz tradition. This diverse genre fusion is performed with an exuberant and unprecedented intense energy.
Håvard Aufles received the Kongsberg Jazzfestival recruitment award in 2016.
