Eberhard Weber QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
As a result, I had to get my own playground which was my band Colours. This band lasted for about eight years and then the air was out of it and it was time to finish.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
At that time in Germany, there were lots of school bands trying to play jazz. I was hired by lots of bands and gave up cello in favor of bass.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
At the time, I didn't know that bass would not be enough for me. I'm not a bass player because bass is always a background instrument even to this very day.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
I am a classical music lover - not necessarily the contemporary stuff, but the old stuff.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
I have had the luck to get this old, so I decided to follow my classical education.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
I like to create the music I hear in my interior. As a conductor, you have the ability to squeeze the sounds and interpretation you asked for from 50 to 80 people.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
I love these kinds of classical sounds and thought I'd like to use them at least once on an album of mine before I die.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
I played cello in my high school orchestra.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
I realized pretty soon that I have to do more than just play bass in the background way. So, I developed a kind of playing which only a handful of musicians accepted.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
I think I'm not a dictator, but I might be occasionally when it comes to my albums. I never give up until it's perfect.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
I was afraid the other musicians might want to present themselves too much, though I see in the coverage I've received of the album that the musicians got wonderful reviews for their contributions and abilities. I think the four musicians played freely within my limits.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
If there is a good musical reason, I think it might draw more attention and sell, though it is not guaranteed. To make a record without a musical reason, you have to either be a pop star who sells automatically or just be lucky.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
In 1972, I got my first electric bass and started playing the kind of instrument I play now. I found that the majority of musicians couldn't bear that. They are not used to listening to the bass because they think the bass is in the background to support them.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
It is probably very necessary to present your ego at some point.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
It's better to finish at the peak or soon after it, than to wait until the audience notices a decline.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
On my records, I always want to be the person who is responsible for what you hear. I do think it is best for the album.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
On the other hand, I'm very tolerant as well. I expect that everybody can play what they want. I'm only not tolerant when it comes to myself and what is presented on my album that I have to listen to for the rest of my life.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
On the other hand, when I give it closer thought, I realize I'm not enough of a dictator to conduct an orchestra because it requires a pretty awful person. When you read these biographies of famous conductors, they are all awful people who fail in their private relationships.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
Orchestra had a little brass ensemble on two tracks as well, but the rest was me. I knew I couldn't continue in this direction, even if people liked it, because I can only duplicate myself.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
Orchestras are not used to playing the kind of stuff jazz musicians like to play. It requires a lot of rehearsal and recording time, so it's much easier to do on a synth or sampler. So, we came up with that idea.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
So, when I'm out on tour for two weeks and then get one week off before more shows, I can't work at all. I need more time and perspective.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
The best answer is that if there was such a thing as a second life - which I don't believe in - I believe I would become a conductor.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
The problem is that I don't want to add another record to the world that is not necessary to be published, except to make some business. There has to be a musical reason.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
The reason I switched to electric bass is because music became very loud in the late '60s and the double bass couldn't be heard anymore. I realized I could put pick-ups on my double bass, but found out when you play at a certain volume, you suffer from feedback because of resonance from the body.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
The way to compose for me is to have lots of time.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
Then I discovered that I will stay with the bass. This was back in the early '60s.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
There are always some doubts when you do a new album though. You wonder whether you succeeded or not, especially when you waited as long as I did for this one - seven years. You're never really sure if it will be a nice record or not.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
There was another thought too: what to do for my next record? My last two records - Orchestra and Pendulum - were solo records just played on my bass.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
They know that improvisation is also jazz, because improvisation, harmonically, doesn't exist in classical music. So, in the end it was jazz.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
When deciding this, I knew that I can never compete with any classical composer. That's not my goal. But I wanted to use sounds the way classical composers do. That's why I used these kind of stringy and French horn sounds.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
When I started to pick up the bass, it was purely by random chance.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
When I think back now to the recording sessions, there is more improvisation than one hears. It's an ideal combination of arrangements and improvisation. Only a few people are able to listen and say what is composed and what is improvised. It's a unit.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
When you are young, you have other ideas. You want to show how good you can play and how wonderful you can compose.
Quotation of Eberhard Weber
Whenever I release a record, it's my record. It's not a selfish thought. I may work all year 'round for other people. So, finally, when I come out with my own album, it should be me with the creative help of other musicians.
