Description

Featuring original artwork from artist Tom Tebby, and limited to just 500 copies. Innovative bassist and electronic improviser Chris Mapp releases the debut recording from his new ambient trio stillefeltl.

stillefelt 'quiet field' in Norwegian hints at its inspiration, with undulating electronic soundscapes blurring the lines between each instrument's voice, but still with their acoustic qualities at its heart, uniting three of Birmingham's most distinct instrumentalists for the first time.

Recorded live in spring 2018, the album uses material composed by Chris as starting points, destinations and waymarks to create free flowing improvised narratives, with liberal guitar effects pedals and audio processing creating sound beds for soaring trumpet and guitar lines over hypnotic grooves.

Having already played the Manchester Jazz Festival and Birmingham Symphony Hall over the last year, stillefelt ended 2019 with a residency at the wonderful Birmingham venue Artefact, with 2020 bringing appearances at the inaugural edition of the Punkt festival in Birmingham, the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, and various UK dates through the year.
