Eivind Aarset bring a unique musical vision to contemporary jazz. Jon Hassell, Arve Henriksen, Bendik Hofseth, Andy Sheppard, Food, Arild Andersen, Ketil Bjørnstad, Bugge Wesseltoft, Marilyn Mazur and many other sought a collaboration with him; not only to play their music, but to add a new voice to their work. His first album as leader, Electronique Noir (1998), was considered “One of the best post-Miles electric jazz albums” (New York Times). The latest musical creation carrying his artistic fingerprints are Atmospheres (2016, ECM), The Height Of The Reeds (2018, Rune Grammofon), Dark Star Safari (2019, Arjuna), Lost River (2019, ECM) and Snow Catches On Her Eyelashes (2020, Jazzland, with Jan Bang).
During concerts, Eivind Aarset uses the energy and the audience’s willingness to listen in order to create music on the spot, and transform it into a group masterpiece. “A concert is a collective experience in which musicians and audience create and execute an exchange of energies,” says the artist.
