Trixie Whitley — Porta Bohemica (October 23rd, 2015)

 Trixie Whitley — Porta Bohemica (October 23rd, 2015)Trixie Whitley — Porta Bohemica (October 23rd, 2015)≡≡    Tvorba alba je hudební cesta a také osobní výlet. A proto se setkáme s Trixie Whitley 3. prosince ve Frannz Clubu v Berlíně. Pojedu tam nejspíše vlakem. “Porta Bohemica je název staré železniční trati, jejíž název vznikl po připojení Německa s Rakouskem. Abych to osvětlila, při výběru titulu jsem byla inspirována konceptem těchto vzdálených cest. Album představuje introspektivní výpravu do hloubi tvůrčí identity, kulminuje v mém odhodlání nebojácně se pustit zavazadla, když je už pro mne bezdůvodné ho mít a není dál potřeba pro budoucí cesty.″
≡≡   “Metafora staré železniční trati je až z útrob mé představivosti. V této souvislosti se vztahuje k pohybu při tvorbě tohoto alba, protože to bylo v podstatě epické dílo. Opustila jsem svou minulost, abych přijala svou novou individualitu a to jako mladá žena, matka, tak i jako umělkyně. Tato nahrávka byla něco jako znovuzrození pro mě, říká umělkyně z Brooklynu.” (zpracoval Matt Conner, October 22, 2015)

Singer, songwriter, and multi–instrumentalist Trixie Whitley was born June 24, 1987 in Ghent, Belgium, the daughter of singer and songwriter Chris Whitley, which got her music pedigree going early. She was playing drums by the age of ten; touring Europe with various theater companies at 11; acting, singing, and dancing with Les Ballets C de la B at 14, and spinning as a DJ at raves and festivals before she was out of her teens. She also appeared on several of her father’s albums. At 17, she returned to New York City, working as a waitress while she taught herself guitar and piano, and she was soon playing her songs at gigs. Bouncing between New York and Belgium for a time, she recorded a debut EP (co–produced by Me’Shell Ndegéocello and Dougie Bowne), The Engine, which appeared in 2009. That same year she joined Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub band, along with Lanois, Brian Blade, and Daryl Johnson, and the group released an album, the self–titled Black Dub, in 2010. Whitley began recording a full–length solo project in 2011, but stepped back from the project for a time to tour with Black Dub. An EP featuring Whitley in concert, Live at Rockwood Music Hall, appeared in 2012. Fourth Corner, released in January of 2013, was Whitley’s full–length studio debut. She co–produced it with keyboardist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman); with engineering by Pat Dillett — both men served as the core of her band. ~ Steve Leggett
≡≡   Porta Bohemica is the name of an old train line that once connected Germany and Austria. Whitely, was inspired by the concept of such remote journeys when choosing the title. The album represents an introspective expedition into the depths of her creative identity, culminating in her resolve to fearlessly let go of gratuitous baggage, not needed on future travels.
≡≡   “The metaphor of an old train line feeds something in my imagination. I related to that sense of travel when making this record because it was an epic undertaking. It involved letting go of my past to embrace my individuality both as a young woman and as an artist. This record has been something of a rebirth for me,” the Brooklyn–based artist says.Author: DELEN
≡≡   Vandaag stellen we jullie met veel plezier het langverwachte tweede album, ‘Porta Bohemica’,  van Trixie Whitley voor.
≡≡   Porta Bohemica, is de naam van een oude spoorweg tussen Duitsland en Oostenrijk. In de treinverbinding zag Trixie Whitley de perfecte metafoor voor haar nieuwe album. Een album maken is niet een muzikale reis, maar ook een persoonlijke trip.
≡≡   “Ik herkende het ‘reisgevoel’, tijdens deze trip moest ik komaf maken met mijn verleden en mezelf leren aanvaarden. Zowel als jonge vrouw, als moeder en als artiest. Dit album is eigenlijk een soort wedergeboorte.”

≡≡ Notes:
≡≡   Wendy Carlos the godmother of electronic music and a trans woman. In 1968 she took a Moog synthesizer, an unknown/obscure instrument at the time, electronically reconstructed works by J.S. Bach in an album called “Switched on Bach,” and won three Grammy Awards for the album the following year. She then went on to score and perform soundtracks for A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and Walt Disney’s Tron. This innovative musical mind is responsible for bringing electronic music to the mainstream.
≡≡   I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions — tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on — and the fact that lots of people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I communicate those basic human emotions… The people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when I painted them. And if you, as you say, are moved only by their color relationships, then you miss the point!
