Arve Henriksen is a Norwegian trumpet player, renowned for his distinctive, flute-like sound on the trumpet, inspired by the sound of the Japanese shakuhachi flute. He also sings; his unique wordless vocalising was central to Chiaroscuro, where he often sings in a soprano's range. The control over his head voice is such that in "Opening Image" he could quite easily be mistaken for a woman.
Arve recently made the album called "Places Of Worship". On this album he inhabits the space between these two worlds, in a series of tone poems and mood pieces located around religious buildings and ruins. Here's the song Lament
Nice misty monday music isn't it? Arve made this album assisted by producers Jan Bang and Erik Honoré, Honoré who is also singing (very capably, and oddly for a Norwegian, in what appears to be an Irish accent) on the final track, “Shelter From the Storm”.
And we end with the song Saraswati (the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts and science) have a nice blue monday!
