ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
GESTIRE LO SPAZIO
With only an electric bass… as simple as that

A disc like no other: all the beautiful pieces in this album have been composed and played by Tiziano Zanotti on a solo electric bass, with the supplement of a few and quite singular electronic effects and the unexpected and fleeting “injection” of an acoustic piano.

All tracks are by the musician himself, except tracks 6-13 by T.Zanotti/N.Ciarmatori. Track 14 is dedicated to Bruno Maderna.

---------------------------

EXTRACT FROM PRODUCER'S LINER NOTES:
"This solo bass project had been around for quite a long time, initially just as a live show... It was certainly a big challenge for Tiziano Zanotti to show that the electric bass can be a valuable instrument in its own right on a whole disc, able to hold the listener’s attention with no support other than a few and unobtrusive effects and percussion sounds. Can the bass be a full solo instrument, as powerful and expressive as a piano or a guitar? Well, after listening to this cd, I believe it can.

I was transported by its beautiful melodies, with Jazz, Blues and Classical (even Renaissance!) influences, and was completely amazed by the different sounds and shades produced by a 6-string bass... The musician told me that he first had to structure the basic shape of most of the pieces in writing - just like a classical composer, as he so deeply is, and then improvised to develop his musical ideas, modify balances, explore new harmonies, all the time seeking to exploit the instrument’s full potential.

In the end, one thing stands out: this inspiring work by Tiziano Zanotti presents us with a new and very personal way of experiencing and playing the electric bass."

Tasty pure sound
Tiziano Zanotti can create many different atmospheres with just one instrument. It takes a lot of courage to play solo and with "Gestire lo spazio" the listener is rewarded with the beauty of the pure sound of the bass.
With this work Zanotti gives a great proof of love towards his instrument.
