HALBZEIT CS171 Markus Eichenberger Creative Sources Records 2010
Albums for solo acoustic instruments in terms of improvised music seemed to me always a bit of a challenge for an artist and sometimes both for a listener. Embracing it with the little(?) means as the instrument present solely is a great deal of work to do.
Markus gave me plenty food for thought especially when it comes to the structure and its contents.So deep and rich is this trip, sometimes I feel that there's a clear reference to some alpine folklore he because of his nationality associated with. Swerving between tonality and other he clearly states himself as a mature and inventive improvisor.
