Previously released by Henriksen himself as a digital album only, we quickly came to the conclusion that this is simply too fine an album to disappear in the digital domain, and that every fan should have the oportunity to own this gem as a proper album in a physical format.
Recorded at the same Rainbow Studio sessions, and with the same top musicians and legendary engineer Jan Erik Kongshaug, this can only be seen as a rightful twin companion to “The Nature Of Connections” from 2014. One can easily understand how Arve must have found it difficult to select tracks for “The Nature Of Connections”, leaving these on the shelf. “Composograph” is standing rock solid as a top notch Arve Henriksen album. Interestingly enough, the track “Gathering In Vågå” features Arve on rather brilliant, freeflowing saxophone (for the first time on record?). There are the typical folk music ties, courtesy of fiddlers Nils Økland and Gjermund Larsen, contemporary chamber jazz, nods to avant free music and atmospheric tone poems. All in all, twelve exquisite originals from one of the world´s leading trumpet players.
Release date 31.08.18
10th solo album
30 years as professional musician !

– a synthesis of wood, metal and electronics
This record is a result of a collaboration that toured in Norway in 2012. Recorded in Rainbow Studio in Oslo. The constellation performed music in the mix of traditional folk, jazz and contemporary music. The first record with this band, The Nature of Connections, was released on Rune Grammofon in 2014 and presented only the acoustic orchestration.
The music on this release contains sounds and ornaments from traditional Norwegian folk music, contemporary music, improvisation and field recorded sounds. This time the focus has been the combination of electronic sounds and the acoustic palette and how to merge this into a unique orchestration.
Presented and performed by excellent musicians.
