Klaeng, die Serie #22: Miles Perkin Solo + Céline Rudolph & Sonic Pearls

Als Outlier on his instrument, Miles Perkin puts the double bass to the fore in a way you've never heard it before. Under his crystal clear singing voice he discovers the enormous possibilities that this massive instrument has to offer: From the extended low register to screaming overtones and driving percussive effects. All this is amplified by feeding higher frequencies through stereo tube guitar amplifiers and occasional drum beats. The music combines ambient sounds, skilful songwriting, precise execution and a special form of virtuosity that always puts the intention of the music in the foreground. After last year's celebrated quartet album on Clean Feed Records with Tom Arthurs, Benoit Delbecq and Jim Black, his recently completed solo album Subtones will be released in spring 2020.

The singer and globetrotter Céline Rudolph moves between Berlin, São Paulo, Paris and New York in experimental jazz as well as in Brazilian music, African-influenced world music, vividly interpreted chansons and urban singer-songwriter sounds. She lets herself drift between genres, languages and cities and always ends up precisely in the music. Their duo album OBSESSION (2017) with Herbie Hancock's favourite guitarist Lionel Loueke is now followed by the album PEARLS (2019), which features not only this exceptional guitarist but also Leo Genovese, Burniss Travis and Jamire Williams, who can otherwise be heard in bands by Glasper, Spalding and Co.Im Stadtgarten the two-time ECHO award winner plays songs from this highly acclaimed album, as well as music that has inspired her on her travels and is brought to life by her touching voice and the sonic kaleidoscope of her band. The compactly recorded compositions are sent on a live sound journey, improvisatory and playfully expanded. The band draws from the sonic possibilities that each of the four multi-instrumentalists, who are also soloists on stage, brings to the band: Sebastian Studnitzky on trumpet and piano/north, Amoy Ribas with acoustic and electronic Brazilian percussion and the modular synthesizer, Sebastian Merk on drums, keyboards and electronic sounds and finally Céline Rudolph, who also plays acoustic guitar and percussion.
