Label: Penumbra    
Released in: USA    

"Cellist Matt Turner and I have been playing together since I first moved to southeastern Wisconsin 20 years ago. The sound of the cello has been integral to my concept of the amplified palette from the instrument's beginnings in 1991. Matt is one of the most powerful and constantly innovative cellists and improvisers I've ever worked with and I'm very proud to have improvised alongside him for all these many years."-Hal Rammel

Matt Turner is regarded as one of the world's leading improvising cellists and has been featured on more than 40 recordings on O.O. Discs, Music and Arts, Accurate, Tautology, Crouton and other labels. He has recorded with Marilyn Crispell, Joseph Jarman, Bill Carrothers, Bill Stewart, Scott Fields, Myra Melford, Jeff Song and others. Turner completed his undergraduate studies at Lawrence University and his Master of Music degree in Third Stream Studies at the New England Conservatory of Music, where he studied with Dave Holland, Geri Allen and Joe Maneri.

Hal Rammel has been designing and building musical instruments since the mid 1970s. He first developed the amplified palette in 1991 when he performed frequently with cellist Russell Thorne in Chicago. He has produced many variations on this instrument and recorded with the amplified palette on the solo CDs Midwest Disquiet and Agog.

Additional mastering for vinyl was done by Alex Inglizian at the Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago.
