Tomba Emmanuelle is Michael F. Duch's second solo album for the double bass. It was recorded in May 2013 at the Emmanuel Vigeland Mausoleum in Oslo. The piece was commissioned by NY Musikk Bergen in 2012. Whereas Duch's solo debut Edges (3DB 010 CD) focuses on the music of Morton Feldman, Christian Wolff and others, Tomba Emmanuelle explores different registers, timbres and acoustic effects of the instrument in relation to the room it is being performed in. The Vigeland Mausoleum is probably one of Northern Europe's most unique concert venues, and highlights the acoustic phenomena that the piece is based on. Michael Francis Duch (b. 1978) is one of the foremost double bass-players on the Norwegian contemporary music scene. Since 2012 he has been associate professor at the Institute of Music, NTNU, Trondheim. He has established himself as a solid interpreter of Cornelius Cardew's music, documented through releases with the trio Tilbury/Davies/Duch. The album Cornelius Cardew: Works 1960-70 was included on the Wire's list of best releases in 2010.
