The debut release of London-based Dutch bass player Casper Hoedemaekers, Heim is an intimate duo of double bass and piano, an inviting, after-hours meditation on the idea of home.
In the five original compositions, there are themes of European identity, lockdown, displacement running through the five original compositions on this album. They show a tangle with tradition, drawing on jazz in its European and American vernacular. The minimal instrumentation of the music allows the rich sonority of the double bass to sound through, revealing the delicate counterpoint of its melodic lines with the piano.
