Blu Moon – a collection of 14 instrumentals recorded in Berlin – will be released in October 2020.
What began as a series of simple ‘sofa sketches’ for solo guitar evolved over time into a more elaborate and intricate collection of atmospheric pieces for a ‘modern chamber ensemble’.
While Bartley’s guitar (electric, acoustic, classical) still remains at the heart of the recordings, Blu Moon is beautifully enhanced by the contributions of regular collaborators; Peter Hofmann (bass and slide guitar), Karen Weber (Cello) and Snorre Schwarz (percussion).
Last Tango in Berlin, the first video from Blu Moon, can be viewed here.
Filmed and edited by Stephen Braiden, it features dancers Claudia Schnuerer and Daniela Feilcke-Wolff.
