Horsving, Jens

Titles

Jens Hørsving (born 1969). With a background in the avant-garde jazz scene, Jens Hørsving has today won a place as one of the most experimental young Danish composers. There are often elements of improvisation in his works. Hørsving’s own instrument is the trumpet, but he has worked to a great extent with ensembles as his "instrument". Hørsving is artistic director of the experimental ensemble Figura, and has also founded the ensemble Sound of Choice to concentrate on improvisation. In recent years Jens Hørsving has worked a good deal with the computer as a medium of expression, for example in works with "live electronics".
