Know More Knowledge is a brand new work of soulful, virtuosic, and uniquely idiomatic music played across eight strings and a couple of trees.
This is the debut album of the dynamic up-and-coming duo Treesearch, comprising violinist Keir GoGwilt and bassist Kyle Motl. Their music represents a synthesis of traditional and exploratory approaches to string-playing, where florid harmonic and contrapuntal melodic devices are shaped by spontaneous shifts in timbre, articulation, and color.
Oscillating between organized, vertical sheets of sound, and local, limbic dispersals of energy Treesearch has delivered its recipe of classical, contemporary, jazz, and experimental music to festivals throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
Listen to this album to experience a concentration of both traditional and explorative approaches to string-playing magic situated outside, between, and among compositional, adventurous and improvisational modes.
“[I]ts own brand of in-the-moment invention, mingling rich tones, rhapsodic gestures, and companionable jousts” (The New Yorker).
