Dot Time Records International Artists Series
Live Recording Concert at Studio Nord Bremen
Dot Time Records (DTR) is pleased to announce an exciting new concert series for 2018 named
Studio Nord Sessions
This new concert series will feature Dot Time Record artists performing in the intimate and warm surroundings of Studio Nord Bremen. Known for its impressive acoustic vintage recording abilities, each concert will also be recorded and released as a special limited edition vinyl under the Dot Time Records Vinyl brand as the Studio Nord Sessions.
“I have always felt that a recording studio was a perfect place for concertizing.” said Dot Time Records founder Jo Bickhardt. “For an artist to connect with their audience to bring out the fullness of the emotional nuances are difficult to assume in a studio recording. By involving a studio audience, it also places the attendee in the element of the recording, therefore making them a part of the shared experience. Studio Nord Bremen is the perfect environment to capture these acoustic properties and elements. I am excited to partner with them for this concert series and look forward to creating more of these types of events for our artists.”
The Concert Series Dates are:
May 12th, featuring vocalist Deborah Carter with Zandscape
June 16th, featuring Brazilian vocalist Martie with Marco Lobo
September 22nd featuring Spanish Trumpet Master David Pastor
December 9th featuring Italian vocalist Chiara Izzi .
June 16th will be the second concert in the series featuring vocalist Martie who became inspired by jazz and passionate about the rich diversity of Brazilian music. Since moving to Brazil in 2010, Martie has been delving deep into a serious study of the Brazilian repertoire. With her distinctive voice, Martie creates a fusion between European sonority and Brazilian roots. She easily transitions from introspective Brazilian Popular Music to smooth cadenced Sambas, and makes a unique combination of the lucidity of sounds and the rhythmic intensity of Brazilian music. Joining Martie will be Marco Lobo, percussionist extraordinaire, described as an exceptional instrumentalist. His amazing ability to add beauty and elegance to any piece of music makes him unique. His performances have energy and grace, and always bring something unusual to heighten the senses of his audiences.
