Forresta presents John Eckhardt’s work for bass guitar & live electronics. Structured yet always changing, it draws draws on stylistic influences such as Krautrock, Drone and Dub Techno. A personal language for the bass guitar committed to pulsating low frequencies as well as to spectral soundscaping that bends space and time like a bass string…
From physical subbass through landscapes of spectral noise to etheral hiss, Forresta’s music appeals to a primal sense of hearing. In his pieces, John Eckhardt carefully develops sonic eco systems that lead a life of their own, and navigates their territory, time and space in a special unity of performer, bass guitar, and color, space & time altering electronics. Organic, spacious and dramatic sound worlds emerge in real time and in unrepeatable ways.
Everything is recorded as played, meaning that all processing and looping takes place in real time, with no later editing and effects.
