Product details

'My debut album Brightest Threads combines my fascination for American post-minimalism, new Australian sounds, and the bass clarinet. It's an eclectic collection of chamber and solo works; bucket list pieces, brand new works, things that make me smile. David Lang's tour-de-force solo Press Release is basically why I play the bass, Reich's New York Counterpoint is a chance to let my hair down, and Ryan Walsh's Bled Out is maybe the playing I'm most proud of, period. I'm joined by Stuart Byrne, Natasha Fearnside, and Robin Henry (bass clarinets) on Robert Davidson's masterful quartet Brightest Threads (Stuart also plays on Akiho's mesmerising Karakurenai), and Thea Rossen (vibraphone) on Tim Hansen's heartbreaking North Head, commissioned by Enyato Duo. I'm very proud for this first offering to be released by my friends in Brisbane at Made Now Music. The bass clarinet here is punchy, guttural, sweet, tender, and raw, and I hope that you find something new to love in this album' (Luke Carbon).
