DUCH, MICHAEL FRANCIS - TOMBA EMANUELLE (LP)


"Tomba Emmanuelle is Michael F. Duch's second solo album for the double bass. It was recorded in May 2013 at the Emmanuel Vigeland Mausoleum in Oslo. The piece was commisioned by Ny Musikk Bergen in 2012. Whereas Duch's solo debut Edges (on the norwegian label +3db) focuses on the music of Morton Feldman, Christian Wolff and others, Tomba Emmanuelle explores different registers, timbres and acoustic effects of the instrument in the relation to the room it is being performed in. The Vigeland Mausoleum is probably one of Nothern Europe's most unique concert venues, and highlights the acoustic phenomena that the piece is based on. Liner notes : Tomba Emmanuelle is the name of the tomb in Emanuel Vigeland Museum in Oslo where this recording was made. It is an unedited concert recording of a piece I have been working on since it was first commissioned by nyMusikk Bergen in 2012. It is for one or more bass instruments exploring different registers, timbres and acoustic effects of their instruments and their relation to the room it is being performed in. The first performance was with four bass students from the Grieg Academy (Sebastian, _smund, Nils Henrik and Petter) in a silo in Bergen 13.10.2012. The second performance featured seven of my bass students at NTNU (Matthias, Erlend, Bardur, Egil, Gustav, Björn Marius and Hallvard) at NTNU University Museum in Trondheim. The third was a solo performance recorded in Oslo a few days later and is the one featuring on this record." (LABEL INFO)
