Anders Lønne Grønseth
Anders started his professional career with the quartet Sphinx in 2000; a collaboration with fellow students David Arthur Skinner (piano), Audun Ellingsen (bass) and Ulrik Ibsen Thorsrud (drums) which lasted over a decade and produced several tours in Norway, Great Britain, France, Belgium, Finland and Japan, as well as six album releases. Allthough Sphinx is put to rest, collaborations with the band members continue. A duo with David A. Skinner was formed in 2005, with focus towards combining sonorities and ideas from contemporary classical music with the improvisational attitude of jazz. The duo has toured in Norway, France, Greece, Finland and Japan, and has produced two albums. In 2007, Mini Macro Ensemble was formed out of a similar principle, but with a larger ensemble and a stronger emphasis on Anders' compositions. After releasing «Mini Macro Ensemble» with a string quartet and two improvising soloists in 2008, the project was put on ice. It was given new life in 2011 with the gathering of eight musicians from a multiple of different musical backgrounds, yet rooted in an improvisational approach to music. Mini Macro Ensemble are releasing two albums in 2015 and 2016.
