Ingebrigt studied Jazz at the Music Consevatory in Trondheim, Norway, from 1992-95 with bassplayer Odd Magne Gridseth. Since '95 he has been a professional musician, refining his sound by touring extensively all over the world with some of the most diverse and important improvisers on the international circuit today. He have participated on more than 100 recordings. Ingebrigt is currently focusing on his work in the Scandanavian ensembles Atomic and The Thing, both of which have toured Europe, Japan and the U.S. regularly over the past decade.

Ingebrigt also have ongoing projects with musicians from the undergrounds of Mexico City, New York, Chicago, Austin and Houston, Håker Flaten represents a special era in Norwegian bass tradition. Inspired by Jimmy Garrison, Richard Davis and William Parker, aswell as European bassists such as Barry Guy, Dave Holland and Peter Kowald, he provides an historical continuity of the instrument's tradition, and as such, improvisation. Ingebrigt’s bassplaying also draw inspiration and energy from his deep roots in the bustling Norwegian jazz scene.

This can be summarized by placing him and his contemporaries in the great lineage of Norwegian progressive jazz musicians that include the famed Jan Garbarek, Arild Andersen and Terje Rypdal, as well as the less well-known pianist, Svein Finnerud, and bassist, Bjørnar Andresen, all of whom were key figures in shaping Norwegian avant garde jazz into the sound we have today. Today, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten is one of the great ambassadors of the Norwegian sound, carrying this strong tradition further, both musically and geographically. He is constantly pushing and challenging himself, seeking out collaborations that hold a promise to lead to new and unheard territories. Read more on Last.fm.
