Cosmic Creation follows and expands upon Arve Henriksen's 2013 album Places Of Worship, a series of tone poems and mood pieces located around religious buildings and ruins. With Cosmic Creation he has gone beyond physical place to an audio exploration of pure rapture, contemplation and universal origins. His latest piece, in eight parts, enters deep space and time to convey a powerful sense of the eternal. Born in Norway and currently living in Sweden, Arve Henriksen was known for many years as a distinctive trumpet player and improvisor. He played in various jazz ensembles in his youth before co-forming Supersilent in 1997, a prolific free music group with Helge Sten (Deathprod) and Ståle Storløkken, which is still ongoing. His trumpet, augmented with effects and electronics, has appeared with David Sylvian, Terje Rypdal, Nils Petter Molvær, Jon Balke, Terje Isungset and Iain Ballamy's Food. With Supersilent he recently collaborated with former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones. In parallel he has created a series of exquisite and distinctive solo recordings since 2001 (released on Rune Grammofon and ECM), which feature a combination of electronic textures, digital treatments and a dazzling collection of horns, woodwinds, ethnic instruments, percussion, keyboards and occasionally his mournful, yearning singing voice. Henriksen's music reflects both the stunning beauty of virgin wilderness and the shifting, cosmopolitan environments experienced by the 21st century traveller. Cosmic Creation is released in a double set with Chron, an album which was first released as part of 2012's Solidification retrospective box set on Rune Grammofon. If Cosmic Creation is about timelessness, Chron is very much rooted in the modern world and the here and now, with most of its source material derived from field recordings Arve made while touring the globe, or recordings made in hotel rooms, airports and other urban locations. Taken together, the two albums give a full picture of Arve's extraordinary breadth of vision as an artist. Personnel Arve Henriksen trumpet, voice, synthesizers, electronics, field recordings.

Top customer reviews
Here we go back to something that is probably too much outside my "comfort zone". I knew "Chron" would not be my cup of tea; I was hopeful for "Cosmic Creation" but I find it too space-y/, too tangerine dream-y for my taste. The choice of instruments is also somewhat peculiar with analogue synths (if that's what he is using) sounding like Farfisa keyboards in some cases.
Also, even if perhaps it doesn't belong in a review, I must add that I am annoyed by the fact that both CDs give errors when being ripped to files. I don't know if this is a newfangled pathetic attempt at homemade copy protection by Rune Grammofon or simply incompetence at pressing CDs, but this technology has been around for more than 30 years and I expect to buy CDs that are properly pressed and readable in a computer CD drive.
