ALBUM Out 03.09!

This unusual collaboration between one of Germany's finest harpist and two Norwegian Jazz musicians creates an unique and personal contribution to the Scandinavian jazz and classical scene. Audun Aschim Steffensen’s compositions combine melodic passages with improvisational moments, but always keeping a strong dramaturgical picture in mind.
Nordic jazz, sounds from contemporary French and German harp music, thematic ideas from avant-garde theatre and moods towards film music are the musical landscape the trio touches and is inspired by. All conveyed through an acoustic chamber music format.

Audun Aschim Steffensen - guitar and compositions 

Hanna Rabe - Harp

Axel Skalstad - drums and percussion

Contact for collaborations

I'm passionate about contributing to fellow artists achieving their artistic visions as a composer, guitarist and concept developer.

At the moment I have a big curiosity for interdisciplinary projects, working with projects which put together elements from theatre, film, multimedia, dance, music etc.

I have done a lot of concept development, so don't hesitate to contact me, even if there's at an very early stage of the production.

Shoot me a noncommittal message for a chat about your project..
