In Conversation with Michael Janisch – Paradigm Shift

Full video available to Academy members »

About This Episode

In today’s podcast Michael Janisch talks about his long-standing love affair with the bass.

Michael Janisch emerged as a force to be reckoned with his 2010 solo album, Purpose Built, yet almost slipped away under the radar while setting up his own record label, only to build up a headwind of critical approval with his latest release, Paradigm Shift. A superb upright and electric player, Michael’s approach is to build everything around his effortless sense of melody, rhythmic ideas and a killer band. Listening to the latest album, it sounds as though he’s been saving up a whole load of new ideas.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • About Michael’s time at the Berklee College of Music
  • How he established a career in London
  • All about his record label, Whirlwind Recordings
  • How he juggles his time between the electric and double bass
  • And much, much more…
