Gideon Freudmann: Coffeeshop Conversation #80 - Portland Cello Project's tenth anniversary

By TOM D'ANTONI // For this special occasion it's a big concert at the Schnitz!

Back in the ole Coffeeshop again...World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan…and it’s not very old, but you know what I mean.

I mean this is the 80th OMN Coffeeshop Conversation.

This time I’m in the cupping room with Portland Cello Project’s (those are two url's) Gideon Freudmann, as you might expect, a cellist and composer.

It’s the tenth anniversary for them and to celebrate they’ve got an amazing concert at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on Friday, November 25.

What were they then? What are they now? And what other projects is Gideon working on?

A fascinating look back, look forward and a lot of the things you’ve always wondered about Portland Cello Project.

Let’s meet Gideon:

The tune at the end is "Puddletown." "It’s from my most recent solo CD (called Rain Monsters). The soundtrack queues from the documentary film I just did are fun but short and this better represents what I was talking about regarding tone exploration - with a little more to dig into," says Gideon.
