On the 21st of September Artvark released their 10th album: Mother of Thousand. New music inspired by the sound of Arvo Pärt and Aphex Twin. A soundtrack for the ultimate road trip.
Watch the clip of 'STNKS'
On the 1st single of the album we play very rare slide saxophones from the roaring 1920's. A genuine world premiere! In the clip of the 2nd single you can see us play 4 original Adolphe Sax saxophones build in the 1860's in the workdhop of Adolphe Sax himself.
On the 3rd single STNKS we turned the saxophone into a percussion instrument, drumming on the keys and using air to make a groove. The alto solo by Bart Wirtz is recorded with his iPhone.

It's that playfulness, ever remaining musical, that is the characteristic of this musical ensemble. The music of Artvark sounds fresh and new every time.

Artvark has added another landmark to their body of work. 'Trance' is a cd to cherish and enjoy endlessly.
Jazzflits Sjoerd van Aelst
They say music knows no boundaries and, we add, jazz knows even fewer. Dutch act Artvark does not simply play, but performs their music. Literally from the first step, this saxophone-only band was different from all others. The band snapped and tapped on stage, turning their movements and sound into a dance. If it can be said for jazz players: they rocked the house…
