The project was so unlikely from the start...
Two musicians from different musical worlds met on a flight to Oslo. A famous orchestra made its way to California. A chance recording session.
There is something that is unique about the sound of the cello. It’s human vocal range, combined with its urgency of feeling make it unique in the world. It is a singular sound of elegance, heart and beauty. By placing the cello voice within the suspensive, airy and welcoming envelopment of the grand piano makes for a sublime and mystical ensemble.
Human is a collection of improvisations from Berlin Philharmonic principal cellist, Georg Faust and jazz pianist, Ben Dowling. It is a magnificent celebration of heart within an ocean of understanding. It is healing music of profound sensitivity and gentle touch.
At a time when computers and automation seem to rule the world, Human stands in direct contrast—as a representative of what can only be possible through that powerful connection. It celebrates beauty and elegance that can only happen in the moment, through wood, string, space and air.
The short story is that everything just fell into place: the connection, the music, the album and the purpose. The more important story suggests that you allow yourself to immerse into its waters and let the heart be healed.
Was it likely? No.
Was it meant to be? Oh, very yes.
