Amaury The tracks on this album are truly captivating and beautiful. With the sometimes haunting, sometimes fresh and open and loud sounds Jo produces on her cello, it seems to me as if an interesting story is told.
Composer and cellist Jo Quail write and performs instrumental music. Her sound is courageous, demanding the intense emotional investment of the listener. Her music reaches beyond conscious boarders and invites you to explore a constantly shifting landscape. The 18th Century Palladian building imposes itself impressively on its surroundings, the spire piercing and dominating the immediate skyline.
Line-up: Jo Quail (Cello). Sounds Like: Atmospheric, loop-based avant-garde music somewhere between post-metal and ambient. Latest Release: Exsolve is out now and is self-released. With new album Exsolve, she's cemented her reputation not only as a talented composer, but also as a master of her instrument, albeit an unconventional one, as she explains. I use a lot of extended techniques on the cello, for example col legno, where you use the wood of the bow to hit the strings and make a percussive sound, Quail says. I do a lot of things very high; somebody called it, 'The arctic regions of the fingerboard,' full of rosin, you know?"
