p.s.  – Hasretim – Journey to Anatolia

p.p.s. – Henriksen is the creator of a stunningly beautiful innovation in trumpet playing: making it sound like a breathy shakuhachi flute. Following a boxset retrospective, it´s never sounded more settled, on perhaps his most straightforwardly gorgeous set yet. Puffs of Chet Baker-style melody bloom amid rich strings, ghostly samples and his girlish voice, with an almost spoken ballad from Erik Honoré a sentimental but lovely ending. (Uncut (UK))

p.p.p.s. – „It would be severely reductive, however, to paint a picture of a starry-eyed naïf having a bit of fun with machines, and there are so many depths and layers to The Expanding Universe that it quickly exerts a dreamlike, hypnotic thrall. The title track is a towering, near-30-minute masterpiece in which slow-moving drones intersect and accumulate into a giant sonic edifice. It’s one of the greatest pieces of minimalism this reviewer has heard in some time, and stands comparison with the best works of Eliane Radigue, Pauline Oliveros, LaMonte Young and Tony Conrad, whilst also sharing some of the psychedelic qualities of Zeit-era Tangerine Dream. It’s this balance of the intellectual and the playful, the computer science and the musicality, that lends The Expanding Universe its rather unique charm.“ (Dusted)

p.p.p.p.s. „Da wuchtet er nun und klackt und klopft und ploppt und tröpfelt, rattert und raunt, zischt und gischtet, klongt und gongt, grummelt, grollt und donnert, und all das zärtlich und formbewusst wie selten einer sonst: Und es fesselt und fasziniert. Oft ganz leise und in ruhiger Bewegung präsentiert sich dieses Schlag- und Percussion-Instrumentarium.“ (Roland Spiegel über Pierre Favres Solo-Drum-Werke, bei Intakt unter dem Titel DRUMS AND DREAMS wiederveröffentlicht)
