Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø - acoustic and amplified trombone.

Born in Trondheim, Norway, Nørstebø chose the trombone and began playing in the local marching band at the age of seven. Not really knowing what he signed up for, twenty some years later he is still wrestling with the instrument, using its crudeness as a creative challenge and vehicle to unearth it's seemingly limitless possibilities. Utilizing a wide spectrum of playing techniques, from pure long tones to noise and the almost inaudible, he often works balancing the intuitive with the precisely constructed.

Since 2007, Henrik has worked extensively with solo material. His first record (“SOLO”, 2011) contained imaginary and widely different free form improvisations, while his second solo release (“Melting into foreground”, 2015) was more of a compositional work, focusing on the inner energy of sound and the tension between empty and filled spaces. In his current set up, Nørstebø is utilizing heavy close amplification alongside acoustic elements, producing a multi-faceted body of sound.

Having toured actively since 2010, he has played at venues and festivals all over Europe, as well as in Russia, Japan, Taiwan, New Zealand, Australia, USA, Brazil and Argentina. His working projects include: the amplified voice and trombone duo BEAM SPLITTER with Audrey Chen, a duo with Austrian sound artist Daniel Lercher and a trio with drummer Raymond Strid and bassist Nina de Heney.
