about

Don Cherry collaborator and Bolon Bata founder Christer Bothén (b. 1941) delivers three CDs devoted to his highly personal expression on the bass clarinet and contrabass clarinet. To quote the artist himself: ”Those empty pipes have possibilities enough to cover several lives”. Sounds and silences are delicately carved out in different acoustic spaces, from a rainy soundscape in Spain to a peculiarly resonating church in Sweden. The album also includes a composition inspired by Tarkovskij’s masterpiece Stalker: focusing on the big clarinets, ”ZON” is composed for and performed by a large ensemble, featuring vocalist Sofia Jernberg, pianist Kristine Scholz and reedists Hans Koch and Per Texas Johansson, among others. It was recorded and mixed at the Stockholm studio Atlantis Grammofon, by legendary sound engineer Janne Hansson.
