Solidification is a quite stunning 7LP box that includes his Rune Grammofon albums Sakuteiki, Chiaroscuro and Strjon, all with added bonus tracks, as well as a brand new album called Chron, his first since his ECM album Cartography. No corners have been cut to make this a most desirable piece of art regarding design and sound. You get the music on classic black vinyl on six of the records while Chron is pressed on white vinyl. If that isnÂ't enough the package includes two DVDs with all 56 tracks as 16/44 files, hi-res FLAC files and original master quality 24/44 or 24/96 files. Kim HiorthøyÂ's design is as always consistent to the last detail and the beautiful 24 page booklet includes extensive liner notes from Fiona Talkington and John Kelman. Arve Henriksen is probably NorwayÂ's most versatile musician of his generation, always on the move, always searching and exploring possible and seemingly impossible paths. From the Rune Grammofon catalogue he will be known through the three solo albums, eleven releases as a founder member of groundbreaking improvising group Supersilent and four with Food (two of them on RG). He was a member of Christian Wallumrød Ensemble and has played and recorded with a large number of Norwegian and international musicians, most notably David Sylvian and Dhafer Youssef. In 2008 he released the album ”Cartography” on ECM.
