Gideon Freudmann - CelloBop
January 18th 7:30pm
Founding member of the Portland Cello Project, Gideon Freudmann has been on the forefront of that instrument's modern creative expansion for more than 30 years. The best word to describe Gideon Freudmann’s singular style comes from the name the artist uses for his performances and recordings: CelloBop. Using the electric cello for improvisational classical, blues, jazz, electronic, funk and folk music, Gideon imaginatively riffs on conventions and traditions. He loops and layers his sounds with pedals and amplifiers, sculpting orchestras out of thin air.
