Color Wheel creates a world of sound in the moment that is continuously in movement, looking simultaneously to the past and to the future. Sebastien Ammann’s compositions are vessels that enable the musicians to embark on a journey that takes the listener to new, yet familiar places.

While well rooted in improvised music, jazz and classical music, the music recalls at times, Ornette Coleman with the quartet’s quicksilver unison lines, Cecil Taylor through the group’s sheer energy and sonic density or Anton Webern’s serial or abstract compositions. Sebastien Ammann writes polychromatic compositions that not only blur the lines between composition and improvisation, but leave ample space for the band to create it’s own collective narrative.

Sebastien Ammann’s Color Wheel has been active on the New York jazz scene for the past 3 years. The band features some of New York’s most creative and fearless improvisers such as Michaël Attias on alto saxophone, Noah Garabedian on bass and Nathan Ellman-Bell on drums.
