Tor-Arne Riksheim Releases New LP 'Shore'

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The composer and performer of synth-based music known as Tor-Arne Riksheim has released his latest LP record album, titled, “Shore.” The album is comprised of 12 original compositions for an approximate total listening time of 40 minutes, making for a comprehensive and round treatment of Riksheim material. It has been released on the instants.no music record label.

Tor-Arne Riksheim's “Shore” is a sonic dreamscape originally written as a collection of film scores. However, Riksheim quickly came to understand that his highly creative, uniquely colorful and smoothly elegant music created stories in the mind without the need for visual accompaniment. The media in Riksheim's homeland of Norway have already begun speaking very highly of his new LP.

“Another black metal band, you say?” jokes music critic J.A. Ramsli, referring to the deluge of “black” heavy metal in Norway. “No. Not at all. This is electronic jazz. Tor-Arne Riksheim [was] an old Telco engineer … now he makes music. Excellent music. Get the CD. Really.”

The album elicits images in the mind's eye with arresting clarity. Riksheim's chord progressions are hardly ever predictable, and yet, always seem fitting and intuitive at the same time. The uncanny ability of “Shore” to swoop up the imagination and fly it away to the past, to the future, to seas uncharted and lands beyond the edge of the world, is rooted more than somewhat in the inspirations that guided Riksheim in composing it.

“The album is a project where I was inspired by the traditional hard life at the Norwegian coast,” he writes. Aquatic ebbs and flows populate the record. “Fishing, seamen, weather, storms, beaches, life and death are keywords, even if it’s not always obvious.”

Riksheim cites as main artistic influences such artists as Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre, Ennio Morricone, Nito Rota, and Klaus Schulze, as well as the library of classical music in general.

A lifelong music artist, Riksheim is remarkably new to synthesized composition, though his “Shore” LP clearly belongs on the top shelf beside well-respected records by artists such as Vangelis and Mike Oldfield.

“Started as a 12 year old in a school brass band on tenor horn,” he writes. “Swapped to trombone and played for many years in brass bands, symphonic orchestras and big bands. Started writing music at about 1982, and went into synths last year.”

“Shore,” by Tor-Arne Riksheim is available online worldwide.
