Frederic Alarie's new album is titled Mega Bass From Original Analog Master. With Mega Bass, Frederic Alarie and 2xHD seek to challenge your sound system in the low register, capturing the warmth of the second harmonics in pristine clarity. It is rare to find an album that truly emphasizes the Bass instrument. This release seeks to fully recognize the versatility of that instrument!

Track 1, which features the legendary Octobass, was recorded at la Maison Symphonique de Montreal in the same fashion. The Octobass is the lowest-pitched and largest-sized instrument of the string family. At a height of almost 11.5 feet, this instrument produces extreme low bass extension harmonics: down to 20 Hz with a peak of 28 Hz.

Tracks 2-9 of the album were recorded off the floor at St-Jean Baptiste Chapel in Montreal, Canada. This Analog Recording was made on a quarter-inch Nagra IV-S analog recorder in master eq curve, with no overdubs or editing. A single Fidelio stereo Tube microphone RL-1 was used in the Pure Blumlein microphone technique.

Frédéric Alarie amazes by the colour, depth, and audacity he puts forward in his work. As a musician, composer, or soloist, he constantly pushes the limits of both his own expression and of Jazz itself.

A member of the Lorraine Desmarais trio since 1993, he has recorded on 34 albums as an accompanist and soloist. He has played on hundreds of other albums as a guest artist with several of these albums having received awards.
