Corrie van Binsbergen Solo Short Info

"Self Portraits" is a solo project by Corrie van Binsbergen on electric guitar. A year ago Van Binsbergen released her first solo album ‚Self Portrait in Pale Blue’, which she presented at the BrokkenFestival in the Amsterdam Bimhuis. Press and public love the contemplative cd and it received many raving reviews.

Van Binsbergen’s liner notes on Self Portrait in Pale Blue:
"In August 2013 I had made a reservation for a recording in studio Fattoria. The scheduled project however, was cancelled. Pianist and good friend Albert van Veenendaal suggested to use the studio days to record my own album. A solo album. After initial doubts (who is waiting for this and what pieces am I going to record?), the idea settled in my head. OK, I will go there but totally unprepared. Tabula Rasa. Sit down and play and see where I stand. The only assignment for myself was to take time, let time in. Let it last and play as few notes as possible. A period of self reflection came in spring 2012 more or less by accident. Due to a fracture in my lefthand I couldn’t play for months and it was even uncertain if this would happen ever again. After having lived in the city for 30 years we moved to the country. I am older. My mother passed away. I can hear it in the recordings; it has become a time document, a self portrait."

Reviews on the album:
- ‘Corrie van Binsbergen is in a league of her own, a guitarist in the category of the intelligent, edgy and exciting rockguitarists as Frank Zappa or Marc Ribot, although she brings to mind Bill Frisell in this recording’
- ‘One of the most beautiful albums of 2013’
- ‘Music of a surprising beauty.'
- 'Crackles and harmonics of amazing subtlety'
- 'a powerful and moving sonic document'
