Jami Sieber plays music on electric and acoustic cello with a passion that translates into soul-baring poetry. She not only enlarges the vocabulary of the cello by employing signal processing and various performance techniques; she then transforms the sounds into music that is evocative and memorable. She explores the breadth of her instrument creating sounds never before associated with the cello.
"Hidden Sky," is a numinous album that brilliantly furthers her calling as an adventurous recording artist. Blending contemporary electric, indigenous acoustic instruments, and occasional percussion by the Thai Elephant Orchestra, this 12-piece collection is stylistically expansive, quietly lyrical, prayerfully sublime. An alluring disc that defies categorization, Hidden Sky flourishes with a poetry of tranquillity, mystery and exotic beauty.
Classically and improvisationally trained while also a fine singer, Sieber weaves a colorful tapestry on Hidden Sky. The CD opens a rare window onto a world beyond the
ordinary and is conceived and executed with sensitivity and reverie.
Special guest artists include: Nancy Wilson (Heart), Benjy Wertheimer (Krishna Das), Rhiannon (Bobby McFerrins Voicestra), Hans Teuber (Ani Difranco), Eyvind Kang (Bill Frisell), Rick Lazar (Loreena McKennet), don Benedictson, Rick Heizman and Ya Elah (Kitka).
In addition to Sieber''s solo work, she often tours with Ferron, Rhiannon, and Jennifer Berezan. Her compositions and improvisations are also a part of the poetry concerts with Kim Rosen.
