New CD: Universal Language
Release date: 5 Dec. 2011
Music is a universal language indeed – but what about diversity of languages – in the music business, in the media and among the audience?
Do you speak Music? Do you understand a jaw harp accent along the harmonic series? The LOOPING jaw harp orchestra (LJHO) speaks its own language using the rich terminologies of jazz, world music, rock, reggae, folk and pop. Ing. LOOP [pronounced: engineer loop] and five other multi-instrumentalists are speaking up in a unique sound flavoured with musical humour.
Ing. LOOP is rolling out the musical carpet by plucking jaw harps: up to 17 of them in a single track, often deliberately distorted, and by playing steel pans (steel drums), marimba, accordion, keyboard and percussion. And he has found two additional like-minded peers in the fight for diversity in music and the protection of endangered rare instruments. Bernhard Hanreich has lent his voice to the LJHO, and what a voice: his undertone, overtone and head voice singing is a universal language which nobody can actually grasp but everybody feels deep inside.
Bernhard Mikuskovics also contributes overtone singing, but most of all, he enriches the LJHO by playing wind instruments such as dvojačka, hulusi, Native Indian flute and xaphoon. Further superb highlights come from musicians of the previous CD, Elephant Road: Ernst Reitermaier (soprano and bass clarinets), Peter H. Thomann (soprano and alto saxophones, zurna) and Boris Wokurka (trumpet).
