Boomkat Product Review:
Exquisite new recordings from preeminent avant-garde trumpeter and multi-instrumentalist Arve Henriksen for his spiritual home, Rune Grammofon, arriving over three years since his Chron | Cosmic Creation  LP and a handful of collaborations with Supersilent, among others, over the interim.
By now you should know this guy is in possession of a genuinely wonderful sonic wanderlust, the sort of spirit that is instinctively guided by emotion and prone to lead him into the most enchanted and enchanting headspaces - and if you don’t know, we recommend you do a lot of catching up!
That said, you’d do well to start with Towards Language, one of his most accessible ports of call, rendering a ninth solo LP instalment of magickally wistful themes lead by his virtuosic lines of flight and underlined by an array of live-sampling, electronics, synths, guitars and vocals.
From first listens we’re most snagged by the gently pulsating, airborne elegance of Vivification with its sublime Reichian phasing and bubbling undertow, and likewise a little smitten with the deep blue tone of Demarcation Line, but we’re sure deeper listens will reveal even more alluring aspects.
Dive in and drink deeply.
