Norwegian music in all genres has success. Arne Rønnestad is a new name for the music audience, though he has been active in the business for many years. Arne is a keyboard player, guitarist and composer. For years he had his own studio 'NOVA', where this new CD is recorded. He has a great sense for melody, harmony and over all for the different moods music can reflect. His debut CD 'På Vei' ('On my way') is a kind of summary where the music has come into being over a 20-year period. Different aspects of his musical creativity are represented on the CD. The music, both electric and acoustic, is relaxing and leads you into wellbeing and reflection. It is all instrumental music, and if it should be classified, it would sort under fusion or New Age. The 12 tracks are apparently simple, but they have many levels. It is music to grow into. Arne is involved in the connection between health and music, and his relation to dr. Audun Myskja at Senter for Livshjelp ('Tools for Living') have influenced his musical thinking. In addition to the artistic value, this is also a CD where the health aspect of the music brings an underlying quality to the CD. Arne Rønnestad is naturally the main musician on the CD. His delicate playing on keyboards and acoustic guitar is an enjoyment on all tracks. Helge Øye (from the group 'Trollsti') plays alto and soprano sax on three tracks. Gunnar Grov (from 'Greenland Whalefishers') plays bass on 'Nye Spor' (New Tracks) and Bjørn Breilid is guitar player on 'Samba'.
