Echolot Konzert : Mobile
Alberto Braida : Klavier
John Hughes : Kontrabass
"Mobile" is Alberto Braida, piano and John Hughes, double bass. Braida and Hughes have developed a musical vocabulary which enable them to make split-second decisions to tap into sources of inspiration, or to completely abandon historical references in order to create a completely new and surprising sonic world. Extreme variations of form and developement yield moments of quiet, transparent tension countered by shifts into propulsive and driving rythymic passages. Each "Mobile" performance provides Alberto and John with the opportunity to renew an on-going musical dialogue which functions beautifully in duo.
"...Braida is an inventive player who channels earlier modes like swing and ragtime into constructs that ebb and gush with a rigorous though never too angular or overbearingly brainy - logic and are executed with a feel for subtle nuance and the more sublime mathematics of melody. Hughes moves between running huge steel poles right through the heart of Braida's inventions and carving beautiful coronas around the variously implied arcs..." David Keenan, Volcanic Tongue
