Sonorous microtonal and liquid rhythmic chamber jazz! The Ole Mathisen Outlier Ensemble explores music inspired by elusive reference points and unpredictability in natural phenomena: turbulence, wave patterns, wind shear, currents. Ole Mathisen, the Assistant Director of the Jazz Performance Program at Columbia University, is known from over 100 CD releases and he has been a fixture on the New York Jazz and Recording Scene for over two decades. He has been awarded several composition grants, among them Chamber Music America's New Jazz Works grant, which resulted in Mirage, a multi movement chamber jazz piece based on illusive rhythmic layers. Mirage premiered at Miller Theatre in New York City and was recorded live by NPR.
