Album Description

Pressrelease MOVIES ON A STRING (EB MUSIC 2008). The acoustic guitar, which has become one of Erik’s trademarks, plays the leading role on Movies on a string. The melodies are known from the world of the movies but the interpretations are free. “I got the idea for this album when I saw Rambo-First Blood in the fall of 2007. This is a movie were the score is brilliantly interwoven and character-enhancing. The music is also very energetic and rhythmically interesting. Hulk is a great action movie for childish people like myself. The main musical theme is brilliant and makes up half the movie if you ask me! It´s not particularly “guitar-friendly” and was an interesting challenge to arrange, Erik says. Movies on a string contains interpretations of well-known melodies like The Godfather and Now we are free from Gladiator. “In the melody Cabaret you can hear me in a more jazzy style than usual”. On the last track, the famous Duelling Banjos from the pulse-pounding ordeal Deliverance. Erik plays his “banjo” with a single pick in a guitar-ish style. Mono, Lo-Fi recording. Movies on a string is the world’s first album recorded with a True Temperament fret board on an acoustic guitar. The twisted frets gives an optimally tuned guitar and an noticeable difference in clarity compared to the traditional instrument. Enjoy the sound of the guitar of the future!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
