“Saxnoise in a way I haven’t heard before, the energy and flow is amazing. This record is fuckin’ EVIL!!!”
-Mats Gustafsson


BEAM SPLITTER is the duo of Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø (NO) and Audrey Chen (US).

Using the trombone and voice, they maneuver a balance between fragility, intimacy, the ecstatic and measured control.
They share a common sense of pulse and an inherent understanding of the way they each aurally manage and let go of every consecutive moment.

The lungs release through to mouths to bell, back and forth like a tactile breathing exchange.
