ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Innovative world music bassist and luthier, Martin Masakowski joins the young virtuoso violinist, Ira Echo as the Cosmic String Duo. In this collaboration they combine their extensive styles and techniques gathered from individual world travels with a shared love of improvisation to create this contemporary chamber folk sound. Martin, born and raised to a musical family in New Orleans, is heavily rooted in jazz but has traveled extensively through Eastern Europe collecting new sounds that feature the double bass as a solo instrument. Ira's sound is also a byproduct of multiple world tours, with a heavy foundation in various folk fiddling styles, jazz improvisation and physical theatre.
This particular record was recoded live one sunny afternoon inside a piano repair hall in Belgium. While drawing through repertoire, making a setlist to record, the plan was made to play through the entire list without stopping or speaking and to refresh the palate by playing something completely improvised before each song. What you hear on this album is exactly that!
