greek double bass playerThis is a CD released by Charis Pazaroulas from Tokyo's experimental label Zappak in May 2024.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Charis Pazaroulas is a Greek double bass player. In addition to the National Orchestra of Athens, he also belongs to and performs in the groups TETTTIΞ and Quinteto TANGartO. In this work, he creates a multi-layered sound that interweaves the double bass with his own voice. He worked on his solo production by recording the music.
[TRANSCENDENCE I] opens with a song inspired by composer James Tenney's work 'Koan'. Each song has a stoic minimalism that creates a sense of tension in the listener. However, as you listen more closely, you should be able to find melodic elements within the song. Furthermore, Pazaroulas' voice, layered over the sound of the double bass, has a mysterious quality, and you can feel his individuality throughout the work, which refuses to be expressed in a single word.

"TRANSCENDENCE I is a musical journey, an exploration of oneself through the rich sonic spectrum of the modern double bass. Taking as its starting point the transcription, study and reinvention of Koan (1971) for solo violin by James Tenney (1934-2006), the music invites the listener to carefully explore the various qualities of sound through a minimalistic approach of musical gestures. James Tenney states in a 1978 interview: "What they can do is begin to really listen to the sounds, get inside them, notice the details , and consider or meditate on the overall shape of the piece, simple as it may be. It's often interesting how within a simple shape there can be relationships that are surprising."
