Johannes Tröndle - cello
Axel Haller - bass

"... What’s more relevant about duos such as this, is how distinctive complementary textures become. Despite the family connections of cello and bass, mysteriously enough it sometimes appears as if textures from a reed and a piano have been added as well. This may be the illusory result of creative tones that can be shaped by Haller’s electric bass or perhaps Tröndle’s cello amplification; but technical expertise could contribute to this as well. …
Fascinating sound intersection illuminated by this atypical duo, this CD should interest bass players of all stripes, as well as connoisseurs of out-of-the-ordinary music.
