Arve Henriksen Returns for a 3rd Year

Arve Henriksen is one of the world's most revered trumpet players, with an illustrious career performing a diverse range of styles from the seraphically spatial flute-like sounds of his 2004 solo record Chiaroscuro to the wildly industrious onslaught of Norwegian 'improv supergroup' Supersilent

In short, Arve is not nervous to experimentation and pushing sonic boundaries, so his eager interest in performing with the Ice Music Festival fits perfectly. 

Having a long term collaborative musical relationship with Ice Music Festival co-founder Terje Isungset (including their sublime World of Glass project) Arve was invited to play at 2012's festival, with huge success.

2015's festival then witnessed Arve challenge ice carving supremo Bill Covitz to make one of the biggest *double* horned ice instruments ever to grace our cold stage. And boy, did the horn's sound blow the audience away!

What musical scheme has Arve hatched for #icemusicfestival2016?

Yep, solo time - no room for any more ice 😂

Sorry film fans, this shot is not a lost scene from deep ocean alien adventure film, The Abyss 😎👽
