Morten J. Olsen

Bass drum!

+3DB017 • 2014

Bass drum! is Morten J. Olsen´s solo debut. Having made a strong impact on the Berlin scene for improvised music since his arrival in 2006, his trademark is impeccable instrumental control and an exceptional affinity for sonic exploration. After touring most of the globe with MoHa! and Ultralyd, his present instrument of choice is a rotating bass drum, prepared and extended with small percussion instruments. From what seems to be limited means, he creates a complete sound world redefining the idea of what percussion music is about. Bass drum is the fourth volume in +3DBs series "Music for one".

Recorded in Grieghallen Studio by Davide Bertolini. Additional recording at Tou Breweries by Jan Erik Hagevold. Mixed by Olsen. Mastered by Jeff Carey. Produced by Bjørnar Habbestad
