Lunapark - Upright Acoustic new CD

SOURCE: Published:
Lunapark Lunapark combines acoustic jazz and electronic soundscapes with formal and harmonic structures of European music. The band manages to be unplugged and plugged-in at the same time thanks to resourceful flutist Sascha Otto and guest contributor Leon Gruenbaum, a New York based electronic musician and sound inventor. All compositions on the new album are by bassist/leader Gerhard Graml. Following Graml’s involvement in various recording projects, world music, jazz standards and contemporary orchestral music among them, “Upright Acoustic” is the third album of his Lunapark outfit. Well aware of musical tradition as well as looking forward through experimentation, “Upright Acoustic” delivers yet another cinematic collage of rhythmic transparency and melodic density.

The new release of this transatlantic team heavily rely on Graml’s versatile musical motives that thrive on the energy and drive of modern jazz, while in lyrical moments carefully crafted themes touch on chamber music - add the creative sound, where oscillating strings meet oscillating electric circuits.
