sample the album:
"Many years ago I heard a quote (I can't remember by which musician), that made a lasting impression on me. I don't remember it literally, but it encapsulated the artitst's desire to create something as valuable and useful to the listener as for example the work of a shoemaker, a craftsman.
Every so often this thought comes to mind - how could I work on music, so it would become as palpable as an object, made from such as leather or wood?
During mixdown of this CD, I converted working names for tunes to more "proper" titles, as is my routine at this stage. Here it occured to me, that the music of "1000" expresses this inner urge, to create a sonic sculpture, music that can almost be touched!
We don't aim for a defined product when we play in this group, but to me the acoustic results gain a tangible quality - it's as if, for real, I could reach out and grasp the sounds, take them for a walk with me."-Jan Klare, december 2011

• Show Bio for Wilbert de Joode
"Wilbert de Joode (1955) is a veritable research scientist of bass pizzicato and bowing techniques. A self-taught musician, he has been playing the double-bass since 1982. He began working in groups that improvised within a jazz framework. Other musicians were soon drawn to his idiosyncratic style, and in the mid 80s he played in groups led by Vera Vingerhoeds, Armando Cairo and Ig Henneman where he further developed his improvisation skills. He came into contact with such musicians as J.C.Tans, Rinus Groeneveld, Michiel Braam, Han Bennink, Han Buhrs (Schismatics) and Ab Baars.
De Joode is currently one of the most active bass players on the European improvised music circuit. His individual style and musicality transforms the double bass into an equal partner in the most varied ensembles. A personal tone colour, exploration of the outer registers, quirky improvisations and the use of gut strings contribute to an instantly recognizable and intriguing sound.
The seventeen improvised pieces on his first solo cd Olo (distributed by ToonDist) show how rich and complex his sound on the double bass is."-DOEK Festival Website (http://www.doek.org/project/wilbert-de-joode/)
