Electric Tuba is a unique mixture of noise, electronica, contemporary classical and of course, tuba. It is a selection of pieces written especially for Kjetil Myklebust and presented as a combined experience on the CD.
Electric tuba, try it! No, a tuba is not electric, you say? Wrong!! You just have to ask some composers to twist their minds. Ask them to put some ideas down. Thoughts. A statement. Maybe just a thought. Wait! Don’t ask anything of them. Don’t give them what they want. Make them search. Ponder. Why give them what’s visible?
Take your predispositions elsewhere. You are the instrument, not the tuba. It’s just an extension. Why stop there?
REVIEW on Sonoloco Record reviews:
This CD has a certain atmosphere and personality to it that makes it quite original, and I do mean original to the core. This is the first time I hear something like this, and that must be almost a miracle, when one thinks of the ease at which new music is recorded and published these days, overflowing our means of perception.
