Weston, Veryan / Jon Rose / Hannah Marshall: Tuning Out [2 CDs] (Emanem)

Label: Emanem    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Improvised pieces for tracker action organs and strings recorded in five English churches. Because these organs are entirely mechanical, there is a more direct physical relationship between the instrument and the player. When each stop is very carefully and slowly pulled while a key is pressed, a myriad of uncertain transitional stages of sound is produced. Thus organist Veryan Weston has a much wider of range of tones than he would have if he were playing a piano or electric organ. Violist Jon Rose and cellist Hannah Marshall adjust the tuning of their instruments to fit in with the particular environment, resulting in music not usually heard in churches (or anywhere else)."-Emanem

Tour Announcement for Tuning Out:

"Tuning Out is series of concerts taking place around the UK, which will invite a listening public to visit some wonderful instruments around the UK and re-imagine the nature of pitch relationships. The music will explore the lesser chartered areas of microtones, unequal temperaments and unusual instrumental tunings. The project involves three musicians who question the rules of equal temperament in their own different ways. They will be making use of some of the UK's many underused tracker - action pipe organs, and using re-configured and re-tuned string Instruments.

Over several concerts in diverse areas of the country from Liverpool to London, Newcastle to Brighton, audiences can expect to be part of a rich sonic experiment, and have the chance to hear extraordinary instruments where new tunings open a world for new harmonies and colours that have, until now, remained locked away un-played. Veryan Weston - long term explorer of underused and ancient instruments and Jon Rose - re-builder and re-thinker of the instrumental properties of the Violin, have been collaborating for the last 10+ years creating recordings and concerts that re-invent possibilities of how instruments can sound, and who use altered tunings as a primary avenue for improvisation."-,
