Soliloquy : Michael Manring

© Manthing Music 2005

This long awaited all-solo CD is Michael Manring's sixth under his own name. Although all his previous recordings have contained solo work, this is the first release that consists entirely of solo pieces without overdubs. Included here are thirteen new compositions recorded live in the studio and a version of one of Michael's most often requested tunes, "Selene," recorded live at a show in San Francisco.

Soliloquy also contains enhanced CD content - simply put it in your computer to view Michael's extensive 24-page liner notes detailing the instruments, techniques, inspirations, tunings, composing and recording processes used on the CD as well as photos and two live performance videos.

List Price: $16.99

Rat Review

This is one of my favorite CD's and some of the best solo bass compositions ever written.

Don Ross / Michael Manring / Andy McKee : Live in Toronto

DVD

This DVD, shot by Bernard Leroux, was made near the beginning of a tour in November 2006 at the beautiful Glenn Gould Studio in downtown Toronto. It was a pleasure to be on the road again with Michael Manring, and to be introducing Andy McKee to my audience. This performance was just a few days before Andy shot the fateful YouTube videos that went on to launch his now worldwide fame. It was a great night

Michael Manring : The Book of Flame

Bass / Fusion

"The Book of Flame brings together the thorny mathematics of Michael Manring's tuning theories with his wide-ranging artistic vision, the unalloyed metal aggression of Thonk with the melodic and textural sensibilities of Drastic Measures, the icy austerity of electronica and the sensuality of Afro-Asian modes and rhythms.
