(more information about the album and United States album release tour dates below)
BANISHING RITUAL is Adam Goodwin's first professionally recorded solo studio album, featuring nine original compositions for acoustic double bass that have been developed over the course of numerous musical tours and wilderness backpacking trips throughout the United States over the last five years, and in particular during his two week artist residency at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado last Spring.
The tracks on the album range from abstract, sensitive soundscapes to growling, detuned rumbles, all juxtaposed with otherworldly melodic gestures and hypnotic, floating overtones. While staying true to its contemporary roots, the album transgresses the boundaries of genre, opening a portal of sonic exploration, resonance and deep listening.
The album will be released on January 1st, 2020, immediately followed by a one month tour of the southern United States.
