MULO FRANCEL - MOUNTAIN MELODY

The essence of the mountain becomes sound. The vastness of the view becomes a melody.

-

Mulo Francel is a saxophonist and globetrotter. With his ensemble Quadro Nuevo he has been travelling around the world for 25 years. As if he wanted to get an overview, the multiple ECHO award winner rises in all these places.

-

Growing up at the foot of the Alps, mountaineering is a natural need for the instrumental artist. "Up here, the spirit gains a generous attitude. The problems and proportions of everyday life remain in the valley."

-

Over several years, in different countries, Mulo Francel climbed up with musical friends. Sometimes it was arduous, but always in a good mood, always with high-quality recording equipment and always with an instrument. In addition to saxophone and Indian harmonium, they dragged a bass balalaika and a copper tube glockenspiel to the almost 3000 meter high seat of the gods Olympus.

-

The absolute height of the mountain is not always decisive. The crater rim of Vulcano north of Sicily is located only a few hundred meters above sea level. Hot rock. Steaming sulphur plumes. On one side, the eye falls down into the volcanic cone. Here the Romans heard Vulcanus, the god of blacksmithing and fire, hammering. Thus, the mountain became the namesake for all volcanoes. The sound of the saxophone echoes like in a huge amphitheater. On the other hand, the eye wanders over the mythical Aeolian island world.

-

Mulo Francel reports on his shots on mountain peaks: "Civilization is silent up there. No motors, no digital beeping. Occasionally the call of a mountain jackdaw. As a disturbing noise in all frequency ranges the wind. Often we had to wait for him to settle down. Sometimes we caught an echo. But usually there is no room acoustics. The complete openness of tonal and visual propagation."

-

From the perspective of the summit, essential music recordings were made. Later in the studio they were supplemented and condensed into the album Mountain Melody.

-

The booklet provides further insights into the history of the album and provides information about the mountains and the musicians involved.
