There’s something thrillingly daring beneath the timbral streams of „Chilly
Wooden”, a gap monitor of „Out of the Beast Got here Honey”, a second launch
of an Amsterdam-based sextet Full Solar that includes a number of the crescent
metropolis’s most daring gamers, particularly, Onno Govaert on drums and Michael Moore
on reeds. Bass-clarinet and composer of Israelian descent Ziv Taubenfeld
debuted with Full Solar on Multikulti information from Poland few years in the past. Subsequent
to Taubenfeld’s bass-clarinet and Michael Moore’s alto sax, the general
ambiance is emphasised by murky frontline of Joost Buis’ trombone, and
restrained pianism of Nico Chantieroli with Omer Govreen on double bass.
Identified for his work with varied Amsterdam tasks, Taubenfeld has not too long ago
relocated to Lisbon. Skillwise, he showcases fairly anti-Dolphean [sic]
intentions by way of what the soloists normally present on bass-clarinet.
No overtones and altissimo work right here, the multiphonics are primarily employed
within the center register.
In a not too long ago closed Konfrontationen Competition, sextet advanced into an
octet and went for a landmine live performance. This yr’s pageant version was
devoted to untimely passing of border-crossing pianist, composer,
improviser and instrument builder Cor Fuhler, often known as arranger with a
„what if” hunch. By way of genre-hopping, it was Taubenfeld’s daring thought
to deliver a Senegalese griot Dudu Koyate to an in any other case chamber setting,
harking back to dangers taken by Fuhler’s Corkestra.
In any other case, Full Solar’s drony melodies delve in direction of the margins of feeling
of ‘eerie’, one thing „not right here”, though it fairly may have been, simply
like an elegy of Co-Vid’s bodycount if you need. With „Spider Jungle” as
a lot as „Andalus Fig Tree”, compositions rooted in Third Stream and coated
in these surreal 11 PM dusks, this composer should not be wanting movie
music requests. Perhaps additionally one thing else.
