The delights of the Avant Garde are not wasted here. Minimal plucking, maximum resonance. #Fri13

About the Album

Timmer, a solo album by Johannes Burström, presents seven double bass improvisations where phrases, onsets, and interstices has been collected, cut up, shuffled by design and by chance, dressed in new timbres and regenerated in 65536 unique versions. Burström's signature feedback-based infinite sustain of ”Gray on Gray” almost pierces the speaker membranes when joining forces with some truly gnarly metallic preparations.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
