Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø / Finn Loxbo / Lee Noyes

- Untitled Trio Improvisation  (2013)

duration  14:18

This improvisation was recorded in Gothenburg, October 2012. Although Finn and Henrik have known each other for some time, this work marks their first time recording together. Whilst Lee had played somewhat sporadically with Finn prior to this date, he met Henrik for the first time the same day this piece was recorded, after sharing together a very fine bolognaise at Finn's apartment.

Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø lives in Oslo, where he is currently doing a masters degree at the academy of music. An ongoing love/hate releationship with the trombone has led him to explore both the boisterous and brassy side of the instrument, as well as the microscopic and 'electronic' sound possibilities. His varying interests comes to play in bands/ensembles like As deafness increases, Lana trio, Strid/de Heney/Nørstebø, Virvl (with Tobias Delius), Skadedyr, Aksiom and in duo collaborations with Rasmus Borg, Adrian Myhr and Daniel Lercher; projects that are ranging from so-called reductionism and free improv to free jazz and contemporary composed music.                   

Finn Loxbo, seated in Gothenburg, is a multifaceted guitarist and vocalist, moving between the fields of improv, folk, and experimental rock. He has a long relationship with the acoustic steel string guitar and is in constant pursuit of extending its  multitimbral possibilities without limiting the instrument's inherent tonal qualities. Aside from solo works he plays in numerous bands, including Strändernas Svall, Moustad, Högberg/Loxbo/Magnefors and Svensk Hund.                                   (Preview)

He's performed live and/or has recorded with Barry Chabala, Bruno Duplant, Christian Munthe, Johnny Chang and Sally Ann McIntyre (Radio Cegeste). Long-time active in experimental music circles in his former home-town, Dunedin NZ, he now hangs his hat in Gothenburg, Sweden.
