On her first solo album, pianist Lisa Ullen plays 13 of her complex compositions, and, in addition to the keyboard, uses the inside piano and, on one track, her own upright bass, to illustrate her extended piano techniques.

Ullen, Lisa: Catachresis (Nuscope)
Label: Nuscope    
Released in: USA    


"Swedish pianist Lisa Ullén's first solo piano disc, titled Catachresis, has now been released on CD and has also been released as a download on HDTracks. Lisa's vision of solo piano includes echoes of Sten Sandell's subtle use of clusters and the innovative inner piano preparations of Sophie Agnel or Magda Mayas. The music is also stunningly dynamic and dramatic.

This 13-track CD, which was financed by the Swedish Arts Council, was beautifully recorded by engineer Johannes Lundberg at Epidemin Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden on a new Fazioli grand piano and mastered by Alan Bise at Azica Productions in Cleveland.

After graduating from the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA, pianist and band leader Lisa Ullén worked in a wide variety of musical settings before concentrating on improvisation. Lisa has performed with bassist Nina De Haney, saxophonist Dror Feiler, and many other fine musicians.

This recording, which was recorded and mixed in the 24 bit domain, features an 8-page booklet with liner notes from pianist Louis Goldstein, who also wrote the liner notes for Sten Sandell's Solid Musik and cover photography from the multi-talented improvising cellist Ceci Quinteros."-Nuscope
