Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø

Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø (born 1986 in Trondheim, Norway) is a musician and sound artist based in Berlin and Trondheim, focusing on trombone performance and a wide range of compositional and cross disciplinary projects. He chose the brass tubes already at the age of eight, and has done extensive research into both the boisterous and brassy side of the instrument, as well as its counterpoint in microscopic sound possibilities, utilizing de-selection as a central process. Nørstebø is closing in on his 15th year of extensive international touring and has released a number of records, spanning from solo to large groups. In addition to extensive solo work, which explores amplified trombone in combination with various noise generators, his collaborative projects include duos with Audrey Chen (Beam Splitter), Daniel Lercher and JD Zazie, large group Skadedyr, new music ensemble Aksiom and a myriad of collaborations with improvisers, visual artists, dancers, entities from around the world.
