Building on the musical possibilities of man and machine is NEUHAUS. A solo live loop project that celebrates the constant repetitions and overlays of layers and creates sounds with violin, double bass and drum machines. Creating all this magic is Yves Neuhaus (The Amber Unit, Mistral). Neuhaus’s ability to perform and loop the melodies on violin and the deep rich sonic lines of the double bass, is augmented by his creative use of the percussive possibilities of the two instruments. Using the bow and his fingers to coax percussive sounds from both instruments by striking their wooden resonant bodies and/or strings. As the musical partner of cabaret artist Patrick Bardelli, the violin player Yves Neuhaus developed his solo loop setting, with which he has also been performing full-length programs since 2016 as “ifoterius” and released individual pieces as live recordings on Youtube. Neuhaus is now releasing his debut album, Scapes & Spaces, Volume 1. Also, this album marks his name change for the project, from now on the solo project of the musician is known as NEUHAUS. The album has five tracks that organically build to cover many emotions, sounds and levels of activity. Produced by Yves Neuhaus and Alain Meyer with mixing by Alain Meyer. Get ready for a musical adventure of man and machine with NEUHAUS, Scapes & Spaces, Volume 1.

The joy of Scapes & Spaces, Volume 1. is the creative way that Neuhaus builds each track. The layers of counterpoint, harmonies and rhythmic intricacies are fascinating. The fact that Neuhaus builds each track live is very impressive and gives credence to his musical abilities and ear.
