Artist Portrait

Arve Henriksen

tr, voc, *1968 NO
Singer / Musician of Jazz and Electronic

Arve Henriksen (born 22 March 1968 Stranda, Norway) 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.
