Info zu Buoyancy

Der norwegische Trompeter Nils Petter Molvaer gilt als Vorreiter der Verbindung von Jazz und Elektronik, der stets auf der Suche nach neuen Klängen ist. Mit 'Buoyancy' schließt er an sein letztes Album 'Switch' an, das 2014 Fans sowie Presse in Bann gezogen hat: 'Eigen, eigenartig, faszinierend' (Audio). Wie der Titel erahnen lässt, ist diesmal der konzeptionelle Ausgangspunkt Impressionen beim Tauchen. Denn 'Buoyancy' bedeutet Auftrieb und so bewegen sich Molvaer und Band schwerelos durch ihre Musik, deren hypnotischer Kraft man sich nur schwer entziehen kann. Mit seinem Quartett, in dem er selbst Trompete, Electronics und Effekte spielt, Geir Sundstöl einen Riesenfundus an exotischen Gitarren und Banjos beisteuert, Jo Berger Myhre sich auf Bass, Keyboards und ebenfalls Gitarren austobt und mit Erland Dahlen einer der vielseitigsten Sound-Maler Europas für Drums, Percussion, Xylophon, Klavier und alle möglichen Alltagsgegenstände zuständig ist, begibt sich Molvaer auf eine musikalische Reise in Fläche, Tiefe und Zeit.

„Für Taucher bezeichnet der Begriff [Buoyancy/Auftrieb Anm.] den Moment, in dem man unter Wasser ideal im Wasser liegt: nicht zu Boden gezogen wird und nicht unfreiwillig nach oben steigt. Ein Schwebezustand, und genau so hört sich das an, was der immer anregende 56-jährige Trompeter mit seinem Quartett hier spielt. [...] Motive aus diffusen Streulichtern, türkisen Schlieren, wehenden Farnen und trüb schimmernden Farben. Die Sounds von Schiffen und Tauchgerät, von Atem und Kopf schwappen dubbig, pochend, knarrend, rauschen vorüber.“ (Rolling Stone)

„Auf eindrucksvolle Weise verstehen es diese vier großartigen Individualisten, ihre kreativen Kräfte in einem gemeinsamen Bandsound zu bündeln und auch ihre kompositorischen Ideen in die zehn neuen Titel einzubringen. Melancholische Schönheit und zupackend Rockendes, zarte Klangespinste [sic!] und pulsierend-dampfende Rhythmen, poetische Soli Molvaers und spannungsgeladene Zwiegespräche die unterschiedlichsten Elemente verdichten sich zu einem überwältigenden Gesamterlebnis, das konzeptionell von Impressionen bei Tauchgängen inspiriert worden sein soll. So eindrucksvoll, wie sich hier Vorstellungen von Zeit und Raum aufzulösen scheinen wäre das auch der ideale, mit den technischen Möglichkeiten des 21. Jahrhunderts generierte Soundtrack zur Untermalung uralter Schöpfungsmythen.“ (KulturSeptember)

Nils Petter Molvaer
The first time I saw Nils Petter Molvaer playing live I thought the world was coming to an end. It was at the Voss Jazz Festival in Norway, my first visit there in 2003. The members of his band were stretched across a huge stage in a sports hall, at the back of which ran black and white images which seared into my mind. The music was urgent, pulsing, unsettling. Cutting through it was the breath of an angel – not the gentle angels of Romantic paintings – but a powerful archangel brandishing a fiery sword – the sound of the trumpet. br>
Years later I find myself on a snow-covered beach on the island of Giske near Ålesund on the west coast of Norway. I’m walking with Nils Petter through the snow, teeth chattering in the freezing temperatures, talking about the light, the extraordinary light which swoops and changes over the mountains, the islands and ocean. 'That’s my island over there” he tells me. We stop and look across the water. Sula. Where Nils Petter was born in 1960. Out of this playground of forests and mountains comes his first musical memory, Billie Holliday singing 'Summertime” on a crackly 78, a present from his parents. This was the soundtrack for the 4 year old who learned to sing it – without understanding a word of course! br>
Behind us is Ocean Sound, one of the world’s most beautifully located recording studios, and it’s here Nils Petter is recording his latest album, Baboon Moon (Sony 2011), taking inspiration from the nature he’s so familiar with, and working with his two most recent collaborator’s guitarist Stian Westerhus and drummer Erland Dahlen, musicians who are uncompromising, challenging, who force each other into musical corners snarling, biting, teasing out this raw beauty. br>
I tiptoe away. There’s a book lying open in the studio, the spine broken, the pages well thumbed. It’s the poetry of Olav Hauge, a Norwegian poet who died in 1994 whose words strike at the heart of Norwegian nature yet his inspirations came from many parts of the globe. I can understand why Nils Petter is drawn to him, he too is on constant look out for new ideas, new sounds, seeking musical playmates from different countries, different genres, as trumpet player, composer, or producer. Hip hop, rock, house, jazz, classical, electronica, he takes so many elements from these and they are reborn in his music. His list of collaborators is a stellar line-up indeed including Bill Laswell, Herbie Hancock, David Sylvian, Biosphere, the EVA Quartett, Hector Zazou, Gigi, Food, Spin Marvel, Batagraf, Django Bates, Manu Katché, Paolo Fresu… I could go on. br>
For many people Khmer (ECM 1997) was a defining moment in Nils Petter’s career. He’d cut his teeth and earned a reputation as a key figure in the Norwegian scene working with the band Masqualero, with Sidsel Endresen, Marilyn Mazur or Jon Balke, but Khmer put him firmly in the spotlight and won the awards. The paradoxically titled Solid Ether (ECM2000) followed, a hard-edged sword with a battalion of musicians on fire, tempered by the simple duo for voice and piano with singer Sidsel Endresen in Merciful. The fast –growing world of technology had its own impact on np3 (Universal 2002) but Nils Petter’s own musical journey remained the master, his ability to create music of symphonic textures with clarity and individuality. It was these qualities which earned him the prestigious Buddy award the following year which also recognised the strong international career he’d forged not just for himself but for his fellow musicians. His globally sought after live performances were celebrated in Streamer (Universal 2004) with recordings from London and Tampere showing fans how works conceived in the studio had grown and developed. ER (Universal 2005) took us into a new, darker land, from the shadows, fragile and lyrical. Three years later, in Revision (Universal 2008) , Nils Petter shared with us some of his global inspirations from the haunting sounds of the Armenian duduk, to muezzin calls, new textures and new thoughts which were already developing in his live performances. And then came Hamada (Universal 2009) with its innocent solo opening and the threatening Cruel Altitude. br>
Throughout all this and the busy international touring diary, Nils Petter was writing music for the theatre (including Ibsen’s 'Ghosts), and for film, another long list including Edy, Es schläft ein Lied in allen Dingen, Frozen Heart, Stratosphere Girl, The Invention of Love, Leaps and Bounds, Shameless, and the TV series Harry and Charles, and playing a key role in awakening the world to Norway’s key role in the development of jazz and contemporary music. br>
The music spilling out of the studio on Giske is still unequivocally Nils Petter Molvaer. It has the passion, the ethereal beauty, the darkness, but also the compassion and the heartfelt humanity which you feel is at the centre of his music making all channelled through in a remarkable small brass instrument handmade in Luton.
