Datadyr

Datadyr is a Jazz trio from Bergen. The music ranges from the heartfelt and gentle to the energetic and explosive, and it’s rarely far between those extremes. During four years of studying jazz at the Grieg Academy, the inspiration that accumulated and the expression that remains today is characterized by traditional jazz, newer directions in jazz and improvised music.

Many of the songs on the debut album have their origins from the beginning of their studies, and have developed in parallel with the band. Songwriting and arranging have gradually taken a bigger part in rehearsal, while the band worked hard to retain the spontaneous and playful expression that was the starting point for the trio.

Øystein Høynes – is a bassist from Sortland in Vesterålen based in Bergen. After 1 year at Sund Folkehøyskole and 4 years at Griegakademiet, he has made a deep dive into American and Scandinavian jazz, something you can hear in the music. Øystein likes to explore differences in genres and mix them. His playing is characterized as groovy and playful, with a desire to drive the music forward. He can be seen in several projects with large genre gaps, and is already a well-known figure on the music scene in Bergen. He has released music with Finnseth Trio, Herkules and Atari, and is currently relevant in bands such as Datadyr, Atari, Tara Martine, Treverket, and HVO.

Amund Nordstrøm is a drummer from Trondheim based in Bergen. During his 2 years of studying at Sund FHS and 4 years at Griegakademiet, he turned his focus to jazz, free jazz and free improvisation. His playing can be characterized as energetic, playful and with a great attention to tone and texture, extremist but with a controlled musical direction, and with clear references to older American and Scandinavian jazz. Amund is involved in a number of projects, and has in a short time made a name for himself on the music scene in Bergen, and played a number of concerts in Norway and Europe. He has released albums with bands such as Avian art, Thomas Lossius Septett and Gunslinging Bird, and is planning publications with bands such as Datadyr, Cort Piil, Mø: san, Dumbo Casino and Shakai.

Odd Erlend Mikkelsen is a guitarist from Odda in Hardanger, who now lives in Bergen. For several years he has been involved with rock and metal with bands like Dreamarcher and Kryptograf. The last four years however he has studied Jazz at the Greig-academy and has explored more improvised music.
