Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Echo Chamber marks the debut solo release from Evan Lipson. This exquisitely engineered multi-channel recording presents a single uninterrupted improvised double bass performance recorded live within the unique and uncommonly resonant acoustic environs of one of the many disused former munition storage "bunkers" (Corbetta magazines) located throughout the grounds of Enterprise South Nature Park in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The album contains sounds of an extraordinary nature, unlike any that have likely been encountered before. Given the location's historical connection with United States foreign warfare from around the mid to latter half of the 20th century (beginning in 1942 and ending in 1977), serving as one of the largest military TNT storage facilities in the US, this recording exists as a symbolic gesture of dignified remembrance; a contemplative and respectful threnody for the millions of innocent civilians who were harmed as a result of the deadly explosives which were once stored at this location.

That being said, playing freely does nothing to serve the social good, and to pretend otherwise corrupts the aesthetic judgment of both player and listener alike."-Public Eyesore

"In September 2021, Knoxville, Tennessee double bassist Evan Lipson entered a disused World War II-era ordnance storage bunker in Chattanooga's Enterprise South Nature Park to record the long improvisation aptly titled Echo Chamber. The resonance of the bunker is remarkable, as can readily be heard in the first few minutes of the recording: miscellaneous, difficult-to-attribute sounds multiply and fall back on themselves, firmly establishing the bunker's interior as an active participant in the performance that follows. And what follows is a stunning, virtuoso extraction of sounds from the entire, expansive range of the double bass, which Lipson plays with a variety of conventional and extended techniques. He is apt to approach the bass as a percussion instrument, using the bow to strike the strings as well as other points along its body, but is just as inclined to pull sharp, brittle overtones from it with bow and fingers, or to pluck upper register harmonies against a bowed, low register drone tone. These, along with a robust, hymn-like passage for bowed chords, exploit the resonant potential of the space to its fullest. An exciting performance indeed."-Daniel Barbiero
