Danish guitarist Jon Hemmersam’s credits include an impressive
catalogue of recordings with Bob Moses, David Liebman, Evelyn
Glennie and many more. ‘Floating Orange’ is the seventh
SLAM CD for violist Szilard Mezei, one of the labels most highly praised
Hemmersam and Mezei have enjoyed a longstanding relationship in many
different musical settings, including Szilard’s CD ‘Karszt’ (SLAMCD 550),
however ‘Floating Orange’ is their first duo recording. The
title was inspired by the CD’s artwork designed by Erzsébet Mezei, Szilard’s
mother, an established visual artist working in various materials, including
ceramics and felt.
The music here is improvised -
Jon Hemmersam describes it: "I feel that the music is really floating, and connecting on
a very high level on this recording, and I do have images containing the
colour orange when I listen to it....therefore it is floating orange to me and
Szilard as well..."
