I have recorded some of my new tunes with Erland Dahlen, Wetle Holte, Audun Erlien and Jan Bang in the great studio Oslo Klang, with Johnny Skalleberg as engineer.

And I have participated on a recording with Tore Brunborg, Steinar Raknes and Per Oddvar Johansen in Rainbow studio with Jan Erik Kongshaug as engineer. We recorded Tores comission work "YM" from last years jazzfestival in Voss.

I have been recording with my wife, Anne Marie Giørtz, for her new album together with Peter Baden.

And there has been a premiere on a ballet; "Sights", coreography by Christine Brunel and music by me.

I have been performing with Dhafer Youssef on his record release "Birds Requiem" And I have done different nice projects with among others Peter Schwalm, Tobias Christel, Khereiddine M´Kachicce, Jan Bang, Andy Sheppard, Sebastian Roachford, Michel Benita, Stefano Battaglia and Michele Rabbia.

Coming up next is a duo tour with Michele Rabbia in Italy.

Rehearsing for Vossajazz

Tore Brunborg's "Ym"

I am currently rehearsing with Tore Brunborg, Steinar Raknes and Per Oddvar Johansen. For what exactly? The answer is "Ym", Tore Brunborg's commissioned work for Vossajazz 2013. Ym is a local vossa expression meaning "Sound from afar". Tore has made some fantastic new tunes. The concert will be March 23rd at Gamlekinoen, Voss. I hope to see you there!

All the best,

Presenting: Dream Logic

ECM 2301

I am very happy and proud to present my new album Dream Logic and my newly redesigned homepage! The record is a result of the fruitful collaboration between live sampler/producer Jan Bang and myself. I find it hard to describe my music in words so I would like to borrow a quote from ECM which gives an impression of how the music could be perceived:

"With its drifting planes of sound-texture, built from layers of processed guitar, sometimes supported by subliminally-throbbing bass, and its otherworldly ambience, it attains an almost hallucinatory quality, underlined by its avoidance of stressed time. Rhythms are as liquid as Aarset’s phrasing. “Dream Logic” is an album of sound-painting which begins with guitar but goes beyond it"

The web design is made by my son, Øystein Aarset, I hope you like it too! I do :)

I am currently on tour around Europe, playing the material from the new record with my band constisting of

  • Erland Dahlen on drums & percussion
  • Wetle Holte on drums & percussion
  • Audun Erlien on bass
  • Johnny Skalleberg on live sound
We have had a very nice tour so far. You can find upcoming concerts here or under concerts in the navigation.

Looking forward,
Eivind Aarset
