Braskiri Live at MCO marks the return of drummer Wim Kegel to the NativeDSD Music store with his 4th DSD release. Braskiri is a quartet that features Kegel along with Bert Lochs (Trumpet, Flugelhorn, NuEvi), Dirk Balthaus (Piano), and Steffen Granly (Tuba).

A unique element of this album is Bert Lochs use of the NuEvi. This is a wind-powered MIDI controller from Berglund Instruments. Something a little different from albums that feature the trumpet and the flugelhorn alone. Lochs plays them all!  

This is also the latest in Sound Liaison’s One Microphone Recordings where a small ensemble is recorded using just the Josephson Engineering’s C700S mic. It’s a Live to DXD recording that is worthy of your consideration.

Bert Lochs says “When Peter and Frans asked Braskiri to do this live recording, I, as the founder and composer of this ensemble, had to dig deep into my inspirational resources to come up with something new. After all, we had only recently released our second album, The Couch Principle, and obviously we couldn’t record the same pieces all over again.

So, I challenged myself to write a whole new repertoire, especially for this recording session. I had about three months to do this, and it is amazing what a tight deadline can do. To my own surprise, I managed to write a new piece every week, for eight weeks straight, besides my normal daily tasks. It was as if everyday life seeped into my music. So, before I knew it, I had eight pieces that perfectly reflected this period in my life. They could not have been written any other way, that is how I see it now.

I think Frans de Rond has done a wonderful job capturing this concert with the utmost precision and dedication. I was stunned by the natural sound he can produce with just one – very special – microphone. Frans even enjoyed making this album so much, that he felt like one of the musicians and I wish to thank him for this unique opportunity. And of course, Peter Bjørnild, who was the one who contacted us, inspired us and took care of all the things a production like this cannot do without.”
