A new release by Matt Turner and Hal Rammel

Fractures and Phantoms (CD017) features duo improvisations by cellist Matt Turner and amplified palettes by Hal Rammel.

“Cellist Matt Turner and I have been playing together since I first moved to southeastern Wisconsin 20 years ago.   The sound of the cello has been integral to my concept of the amplified palette from the instrument’s beginnings in 1991. Matt is one of the most powerful and constantly innovative cellists and improvisers I’ve ever worked with and I’m very proud to have this recording become part of Penumbra Music’s catalog.”   (Hal Rammel)

Matt Turner is regarded as one of the world’s leading improvising cellists and has been featured on more than 40 recordings on O.O. Discs, Music and Arts, Accurate, Tautology, Crouton and other labels. He has recorded with Marilyn Crispell, Joseph Jarman, Bill Carrothers, Bill Stewart, Scott Fields, Myra Melford, Jeff Song and others.  Turner completed his undergraduate studies at Lawrence University and his Master of Music degree in Third Stream Studies at the New England Conservatory of Music, where he studied with Dave Holland, Geri Allen and Joe Maneri.
