Notes

Aaron Lumley celebrates a decade of playing the double bass with the release of his new solo cassette, KATABASIS/ANABASIS . Released on Montreal's innovative DIY label Small Scale Music, KATABASIS/ANABASIS offers up an hour of intense, beautiful acoustic double bass explorations and improvisations. As the follow-up to Lumley's critically-lauded debut LP, Wilderness (Tone Wood Editions, 2012), KATABASIS/ANABASIS burns with bluesy gut string riffage, aggressive/expressive arco passages, and ghostly overtone meditations. The album was recorded live with a single pair of stereo mics and no overdubs. Tracks were then later edited into two continuous, harrowing and psychedelic sides. KATABASIS/ANABASIS is unvarnished, passionate, and adventurous bass music that deals in pushing against limits—those of both the corporeal body and the musical imagination—and processes of creation, breakdown and renewal.

“Lumley reaches lonesome heights of the highest mystic calibre.” —Aaron Levin, Weird Canada
