THE ART OF BEING HUMAN - «Unique and deeply affecting music … More than a celebration of nature, Hole puts - both literally and figuratively - himself and the music in the very middle of it. Thus, in addition to being a collection of fascinating pieces for solo double bass, the album has become a metephor for how human kind is a part of nature. If we loose nature, we loose much of what it means to be human»

“…and while you may not walk away with discernible melodies on the brain, you will have in your possession something far more indelible: a feeling that you have known the texture of a soul.”

Today I am releasing the new single "Duggdråper". It is the first snippet from my upcoming solo double bass album "Lys / Mørke" (out February 2020). Listen here: https://open.spotify.com/track/25J3oGuHHsiuBEpB2pAyEv?si=gQ8rRO_2TZyqmHf...

Excerpt from press release:

"Bassist Sigurd Hole delivered a bold but meditative solo bass performance over the course of a hypnotic hour in the compact Radsalen room, dwelling in a landscape of enigmatic harmonics, impressionistic melodic logic and ambient aesthetics of his distinctive devising."

This morning (27. mars 2019) I played a morning concert at 08:15 in the wonderful main concert hall i Malmö Konserthus. It must be one of the best - if not the best - rooms in which I have ever performed. To be able to fill the entire space alone with my double bass playing without any amplification, feeling the immediate, well-balanced response from this huge 1700 seat concert hall in even the softest of dynamics was a truly fantastic experience.

Looking very much forward to performing solo at these two great venues: Nasjonal Jazzscene in Oslo (April 25th - double bill with Tord Gustavsen solo) & Molde International Jazzfestival (July 17th) - opening a new venue for acoustic concerts at the festival.

Excerpt: «The pieces on the album are beautiful, the sense of timing and drama is strong, and Hole´s sound - with lasersight intonation and a haze of overtones - is gorgeous»
