Arve states that he has always had an interest in sound-making since the beginning of his work with the trumpet. For example, I spent hours developing a warm sound. But that’s not all. I believe the trumpet is capable of producing a wide range of sound tones and sounds that we have yet to hear. Nils Petter Molvaer, who I believe was 1988, gave me a cassette with shakuhachi flute playing. Things changed. Arve Henriksen started collecting Japanese music recordings, using koto, shakuhachi, and other instruments. “I let the music ring in my head and allow it to develop.” I was amazed by the sound of this flute The roots of the shakuhachi in Zen Buddhism fascination the trumpeter. Also, its “meditative u0026 minimalistic expressive qualities”. This has inspired me to work in new directions with sound and tone making.” But this is not his only interest. All kinds of folk music have inspired him, including the Norwegian. He now wants to work with contemporary, composed music. He also has experience with electronics and various treatments for the trumpet. He has been singing for the past few years. from
