ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music, both the style and exceptionally crisp playing, drew me in and swept me along for the ride...Gypsophilia wrings every last bit of emotion from the melodies. Robinson's original tunes fit well among the traditional pieces; he's managed to capture the right mood and technique, and his tunes could probably pass for natives. Gypsophilia hooked me with something very different from the norm, and I suspect they'll hook you, too."
– Tom Knapp, from the webzine Rambles

"Splendid work, incredibly powerful impression. We were glad and proud discover for us and for our audience Gypsophilia, touch such bright creation, such highest culture and mastery. Please hand our best wishes to Claudia and Alfred. Thank You for joy of dealings with wonderful music. Much friendly love from Siberia.
Serge Tikhanoff (Radio Penguin)

The music of Gypsophilia is borrowed music, plucked from different cultures and traditions and woven into a unique tapestry all our own. Inspired by both the deep religious history and the culinary delights of the Middle Eastern and Eastern European regions, Scott began collecting recordings and transcribing traditional pieces for the band years ago. In many pieces there is a section of improvisational soloing by one or more players at a time. Under the solos runs a repeated line the rest of the group continues to play, called an ostinato. This method of soloing is called taksim, and allows us to follow the flow of the music wherever it will take us, and guarantees that every performance is unlike the one before it.

Much of our repertoire comes from Greece and Turkey, but there are also Bosnian, Armenian, Romanian and Serbian pieces to be heard as well. The original works that Scott has composed draw from all of these traditions, often mingling English words with Hebrew rhythms and a Turkish chord structure. As a band we are dedicated to demonstrating through our music that while there are many diverse cultures and beliefs on this globe we all inhabit, music is truly a universal language that can soften tensions and break down barriers between people.
