Drawing on inspiration from his five years spent living in Africa, collaborations with musicians from diverse backgrounds and reflections on his homeland of Australia, Nathan Riki Thomson creates a border crossing sonic landscape rich in colour, texture, dialogue and rhythm. The term Resonance is explored on this album as both a physical phenomenon and a metaphor for intercultural dialogue, connection, collaboration and identity. Six collaborators were chosen by Nathan specifically for this album and he engages in dialogue with each of them in duo format, alongside a set of solo pieces and a composition for quartet. Nathan’s unique double bass sound transforms itself via a series of acoustic attachments and electronic manipulation. The palette of sound also features Brazilian berimbau, Finnish prepared kantele, Chinese guzheng and Sami joik, along-side live electronics, springs and custom-made percussion instruments. On this album the effects of intercultural dialogue fuse into a unique voice, finding primary resonance deep below the musical surface. Nathan Riki Thomson is Lecturer and Programme Leader for Global Music at Sibelius Academy, Uniarts Helsinki. Resonance forms part of his artistic doctoral work.
