Almeida, Goncalo -& Rutger Zuydervelt-
Eventual is the first album by double bass player Goncalo Almeida and knob twidler Rutger Zuydervelt. Its not exactly their first collaboration though, having released two EPs, Doze Ruinas and Jangadas, and being colleagues in Hydra Ensemble (with cellists Lucija Gregov and Nina Hitz). While Almeida is also a master in furious skronk, Eventual highlights his more minimalistic and patient side, combined with the detailed and multi-layered sound design by Zuydervelt. The icing on the cake is the beautiful mastering by Jos Smolders.
