Michael Kiedaisch & Florian Döling

Michael Kiedaisch (Vibraphon) & Florian Döling (Bass)

New Horizons

Experience the birth of a new duo live on CD: this is promised by the recording of the first joint performance by vibraphone player Michael Kiedaisch and double bass player Florian Döling as part of the Gestorfer Sommermusik on July 1, 2018 at the local Romanesque church. This rarely-heard duo draws its special charm from the combination of the bright, percussive, harmonious sound of the vibraphone with the dark, warm sound of the double bass.
The duo's program offers exclusively compositions of the two actors, specially arranged for this duo. Their focus is on melodious and harmonically rich ballads, but also on relaxed grooving, in the next moment exciting rhythmic songs that sometimes swing into hypnotic repetitive, always open to new, surprising twists and directions in the common improvisations.
In the liner notes of the CD, producer Florian Döling defines the programmatic idea of the duo: "new horizons - a synonym for "going on a journey", further development, discovering new musical ways and combinations, or in short: an eternal driving force for every alert and curious musician.
In my view, the wheel does not have to be reinvented, but rather, it is worthwhile to resort to existing compositions and to rearrange and interpret them in ensembles with different instrumentation. New horizons, however, also includes new compositions, which were written specifically for this instrument combination. Therefore, it will be exciting to see how our program evolves in the future ..."
