Burnside Album Details
Gilchrist, Maeve & Viktor Krauss, Vignette
This first-time collaboration between harpist Maeve Gilchrist and bassist Viktor Krauss weaves a spell in music that is intimate and cinematic. Gilchrist’s command of her unusual instrument is as striking on Vignette as on her highly acclaimed previous two Adventure Music albums, 20 Chandler St. (2014) and Song of Delight (2011). She moves seamlessly from roots in the British Isles into an exploratory, modern approach. Krauss, as bassist, solo artist, multi-instrumentalist, and studio wizard, reveals new depths in this work. The co-production is a feast for the ears, where tube amps, subtle space echo, and an emphasis on round, warm tones create serene, tactile beauty.
