David Nicholson was born in Montreal in 1970. His career began at Artists Space in New York in 2002 and he now lives and works in Berlin, where he is represented by the Michael Haas Gallery. In 2018, Nicholson decided to assert a musical stance based on his lifelong love for the blues by producing a vinyl album, reminiscent of 1970s LP records. The recording took place in his paint studio, invoking the minimalist spirit of field recordings, rendered with modern technology. This approach set the parameters for the project which later expanded to include a recording made on site at Freiberg Cathedral, home to a Baroque masterpiece, Gottfried Silbermann’s organ. To help bring his vision to fruition, Nicholson assembled an ensemble of 12 musicians and singers, including famed jazz organist Brian Charette, trumpeter Christoph Titz, and guitar maestro and sound engineer Thomas Büchel. The results speak for themselves. Sit back and immerse yourself in a musical adventure and note that the creators of the album advise that this LP disc is best enjoyed with a bottle of Chinon 2018.
