Subtonic debut album "In this house" AIMCD106.


Subtonic is a quintet who met at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo, Norway. The band has its origin from different musical styles such as mainstream jazz and more freely based music.
The music is written by all the members of the band and is inspired by both the American jazz tradition, as well as the European sound. Today the band has evolved their music more into peculiar and extended compositions, where they try to focus on melody and texture, combined with energy and space. Julie Dahle Aagård writes most of the lyrics.
Strong melodies and a powerful rhythm section initiate Subtonic.
Subtonic is on a program sponsored by the Norwegian company Statoil in cooperation with Oslo Jazz festival. The sponsor agreement is set to last three years, with possibilities for extensions. Since 1991 Statoil has supported young talents within classical music. Musicians like cello player Truls Mørk, piano player Leif Ove Andsnes and trumpet player Ole Edvard Antonsen have received fundings. Now Statoil are supporting Subtonic.
