  • Audun Automat
    - was initiated in 2006 by bassist Audun Ellingsen and was originally a band inspired by European free jazz from the period around 1970. Since then the focus has moved from open forms to more composed structures and the expression has matured and become more nuanced. But we can still hear an echo of the 70´s in the instrumentation, the sound aesthetics and maybe even in the attitude to improvisation. The members of this group are part of the very active young, Norwegian jazz scene, and individually have played with many great musicians like Frøy Aagre, Chick Corea, Sonny Simmons, Bobo Stensson, Andy Sheppard, Tomasz Stanko and Kenny Wheeler. Audun Ellingsen studied jazz in Leeds, but is now based in Oslo. He has toured UK with Frøy Aagre and has collaborated with Matthew Bourne on the album Arch70 (pling004).

    Inside the Beehive
    - is Audun Automat´s second release and consists of 8 pieces composed by Audun Ellingsen. The pieces vary from high-energy modal jazz to contemplative soundscapes - from chaos to perfect order. The music is based on strong melodies, complex structures, virtuosic improvisations and small hints of inspiration from far and near. The album is recorded on analogue equipment to get that organic sound of the 70´s.
