Every now and then I try to google norway or norwegian + shakuhachi to see if there might be someone else in this country that plays shakuhachi and is on the internet.

Arve Henriksen always shows up, the only one.
I find his music beautiful....and he claims to be influenced by shakuhachi.


Arve Henriksen began collecting recordings of Japanese music, with koto, biwa, shakuhachi and other instruments: "I let the music 'ring' and develop in my head. I was astonished by the sound of this flute..." The shakuhachi's roots in the tradition of Zen Buddhism fascinated the trumpeter, as did its "meditative and minimalistic expressive quality. "This has made me work with tone and sound making in a new direction.”


BIOGRAPHY
Born in 1968, Arve Henriksen studied at the Trondheim Conservatory from 1987-1991, and has worked as a freelance musician since 1989.
He has worked with many musicians familiar to ECM listeners, including Jon Balke (with whose Magnetic North Orchestra he has played extensively), Anders Jormin, Edward Vesala, Jon Christensen, Marilyn Mazur, Audun Kleive, Nils Petter Molvær, Misha Alperin, Arkady Shilkloper, Arild Andersen, Stian Carstensen, Dhafer Youssef, Hope Sanduval, the Cikada String Quartet, The Source and more. He has played in many different contexts, bands and projects, ranging from working with koto player Satsuki Odamura, to the rock band Motorpsycho via numerous free improvising groups with Ernst Reisiger, Sten Sandell, Peter Friis-Nilsen, Terje Isungset, Marc Ducret ,Karl Seglem et cetera. Today he is working with Supersilent, Christian Wallumrod Ensemble and Trygve Seim Ensemble.
He has composed music (commision) to Bale Jazz, Vossa Jazz, "My own private furry" (dance performance) and to "FRED" (theatre performance). He was «artist in residence» at Moers Jazzfestival 2006 and he has been a part of the European Jazz Launch project 2004-2006.


Arve says: "An interest in sound-making was there from the beginning of my work with the trumpet. I have spent many hours on developing a warm sound, for instance, but not only that. In my opinion, the trumpet has vast potential for tone and sound variations that we still have not heard. At one point, I think it was in 1988, Nils Petter Molvær lent me a cassette of shakuhachi flute playing. Then things changed."

Arve Henriksen began collecting recordings of Japanese music, with koto, biwa, shakuhachi and other instruments: "I let the music 'ring' and develop in my head. I was astonished by the sound of this flute..." The shakuhachi's roots in the tradition of Zen Buddhism fascinated the trumpeter, as did its "meditative and minimalistic expressive quality. "This has made me work with tone and sound making in a new direction.”

But his interest doesn’t stop with this. He has been inspired by all sorts of folk music, also the Norwegian. He is now interested to work with more contemporary and composed music. He has also spent time on electronics and different treatments on the trumpet. And during the last years has also been focusing on his singing.

He has received Radka Toneffs Minnepris and Norsk Jazzforums Buddy Award, nominated to Nordisk Råds musikkpris in 2009 and also nominated to European Jazz musician of the year 2009. He was the "artist in residence" at Molde Jazz Festival 2009. He has a long discography counting over 100 records.

Very cool, thanks for sharing that! I played trumpet for a number of years but didn't really care for it; this has given me a new appreciation for the instrument. I picked the trumpet back in middle school because it had the least amount of buttons, so it had to be the easiest instrument, right? Embarassed

"Sakuteiki" is the album that sounds like it could be an excellent modern shakuhachi album, but it's trumpet. Brilliant stuff. However he is a knob, because I have written to him about bringing him to Oz and he ignores it. Question Crying or Very sad Evil or Very Mad Neutral Bannir

Yoy propably tried it, but just in case - this is the link to his management:
http://www.kalleklev.no/artists/1-artists/1416-arve-henriksen.html

If that doesn't work and you are really eager to contact him, let me know, and I will try to contact someone here - maybe its easier from Norway.
