Audun Aschim Steffensen Audun Aschim Steffensen

Audun Aschim Steffensen (b. 1991) was educated at the Norwegian Academy of Music where he earned a Master’s degree in composition and guitar performance. Already at the age of 23, he collaborated with Paolo Vinaccia on Dommedag ifølge Paulus, a work commissioned by Oslo Jazzfestival with the Norwegian Soloist Choir and guitarist Eivind Aarset. He has since worked on many interdisciplinary productions, including Alya-Vijnana for The Norwegian Wind Ensemble with Hanna Rabe as soloist in 2017.

In 2018, his work Cryptics for solo percussionist was premiered by KORK percussionist Christian Lundqvist as part of the KORK-Kammer series. He recently wrote Anastasis for Nils Petter Molvær and Catharina Chen, which was premiered at Music in Sandefjord in October 2019.

While maintaining a hectic schedule as a performing musician, Audun still manages to find time to compose his own music, which has resulted in his debut album MYTHOS, released on Smeik in September 2019.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
