Arve Henriksen (trumpet, vocal, electronics); Jan Bang (live sampling); Audun Kleive (drums, percussion). "Chiaroscuro is the follow-up to this fantastic trumpet player´s debut album, the much acclaimed Sakuteiki from 2001 (RCD2021). This time he is joined by drummer Audun Kleive and sound artist Jan Bang to create some very beautiful musical soundscapes where the trumpet is the natural focal point. There´s also more room for Arve´s wordless singing, sometimes used to stunning effect with Supersilent. As with Sakuteiki, Chiaroscuro is recorded on locations in Norway, but this time in concert situations. The final selections have been chosen by Arve himself and treated and mixed by Jan Bang and Erik Honoré. The album´s title comes from the Italian word meaning light and shade, referring to the technique of using these elements to achieve an illusion of depth in two-dimensional works of art and later in moving pictures, cue the titles of the individual tracks on the album."
