ABOUT THE LABEL:
Human Metronome was founded in Shreveport, Louisiana, by amateur cellists Helen and Beecher Wood. It was originally conceived of for recording classical music CDs of the cello duets written by the composer, Jacques Offenbach (1819 - 1880), to realize the dream of their cello teacher and friend, Paul Christopher. The Woods' love of the cello, their own "at home" cello duet playing, including their cello lessons from Paul Christopher, Ruth Drummond (and Paul’s stand partner from the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra, Kristina Vaska-Haas) and their periodic hosting of various small chamber music recitals by these and other pros, all inspired them to launch this, their own independent classical music record label.
The Gift of Melody was their inaugural product, which garnered some real success: from sales, placement in a made-for-BBC documentary movie as background music to a full feature piece by ZCZ Films, in London, on the artist Toulouse Lautrec, and numerous 5-Star critical reviews. Three other CDs have followed, and now this one is the fifth. Six are expected, to round out Offenbach's "Cours Methodique de duos pour Deux Violoncelles" Opus 49-54.
Human Metronome is an ideal example of entrepreneurial achievement in music production. The CDs, while produced on small budgets in the home studio, are created using distinguished professional musical artists and an expert sound engineer.
Produced in Shreveport, Louisiana.
