Works for Upright Bass and Amplifier

livkon Urgency, groove, tradition, anger, it's all there in this wonderful bass sound. The pieces reveal different aspects each time I listen to them. Feedback, overtones, shifting patterns, lyrical moments, make this a very contemporary and explorative album, while tone and phrasing at times reaffirm the power of the instrument's tradition. Favorite track: Works for Upright Bass and Amplifier Pt. II.

earleybr This is really powerful music. Some people say music itself is not spiritual, okay, fair enough. But this could be 21st Century Buddhist temple music. Or at least you can listen to it that way. If you practice, try a sound meditation to it. I have, and it is a strong experience. Favorite track: Works for Upright Bass and Amplifier Pt. I.

johnnypaddock The range of sounds that Luke Stewart creates is really something else. After awhile it is hypnotic and strangely soothing. Definitely worth checking out.
