Gideon Freudmann

Back by popular demand, the Lebanon Public Library will be hosting a Fireside Concert February 24th at 7 pm with Gideon Freudmann’s Cello Bop!

 

The best word to describe Gideon Freudmann’s singular style comes from the name the artist uses for his performances and recordings: CelloBop. Using the electric cello for improvisational classical, blues, jazz, electronic, funk and folk music, Gideon imaginatively riffs on conventions and traditions. He loops and layers his sounds with pedals and amplifiers, sculpting orchestras out of thin air.
