Continua la serie dei ONE MORE del duo ticinese Natalie Peters e Guy Bettini, Christian Weber é il tredicesimo illustre ospite di questo concetto performativo. L’ultimo ONE MORE con Sebi Tramontana, il live, diventerà una pubblicazione presso l’etichetta svizzera UNIT Records, uscita prevista per metà luglio. Christian Weber é uno di quei bassisti della giovane generazione europea che, con una solida formazione classica e con escursione nel rock progressivo, si dedica all’improvvisazione libera con una naturalezza e una scioltezza come se questa pratica fosse stata la prima ad essere assimilata nel percorso di apprendimento. Nel 2001e3 riceve il premio culturale della città di Zurigo e nel 2002 una commissione da parte della Pro Helvetia. Il suo primo CD viene prodotto dalla prestigiosa casa discografica Hat Hut. Le collaborazioni e i progetti di spicco sono numerosissimi; Johannes Bauer, John Butcher, Antoine Chessex, Gene Coleman, Collegium Novum, Lol Coxhill, Michel Doneda, Peter Evans, Pierre Favre, Peter K Frey, Charles Gayle, Gegenklang, Andy Guhl, Uli Gumpert, Vera Kappeler, Mazen Kerbaj, Hans Koch, Peter Kowald, Joachim Kühn, Oliver Lake, Urs Leimgruber, Tony Levin, Werner Lüdi, Paul Lytton, Phil Minton, Evan Parker, Olaf Rupp, Julian Sartorius, Irène Schweizer, Elliott Sharp, Colin Vallon, Stephan Wittwer, Nils Wogram, Christian Wolfarth, Nate Wooley, Katsura Yamauchi, Raed Yassin, Otomo Yoshihide, Alfred Zimmerlin…

“Double bassist Christian Weber is fast becoming one of the most interesting
elektroacoustic Improv scene. Although he’s a good free improvisor, he seems to prefer to work with predetermined structures, albeit ones that are either hidden or very discreet.“
Brian Marley – The Wire (UK) Jan 2007

“Label-head Werner Uehlinger has shown through the years that he is willing to stick by musicians and foster their growth. This release shows that Weber is a leader full of ideas and someone well worth that investment.“
Michael Rosenstein - Signal to Noise (USA) Nov 2006

“While listening to Weber’s music it is my experience that it has strong sense of direction and structure.“
Dolf Mulder – Vital Weekly (NL) Dec 2006

“Christian Weber’s arco drones are rich and lustrous, and when he drops individual notes in to the mix they detonate like honey bombs.“
Brian Marley – The Wire (UK) Jan 2007
