ECM Mar 25th 2011

A co-leader of the popular Norwegian trio Supersilent, Henriksen's singular trumpet-sound has made him a much sought-after session player. Cartography surrounds his uniquely lyrical trumpet with a shifting cast of characters whose experience spans jazz, classical music, ambient music, remix culture and more. Produced by shapers of soundscapes Jan Bang and Erik Honoré, the album features guests including pop singer/composer David Sylvian (reading two of his poems), Eivind Aarset, Audun Kleive and the voices of Trio Medieaval, who all provide a changing terrain over which Henriksen's trumpet glides and soars. Cartography: the art of drawing maps. The album can be considered a map of moods, a range of changing landscapes for Henriksen to explore. Very "visual" music - like soundtracks for unmade films - with emphasis on melody and atmosphere.
