02/03/23 – Monte Carlo Fallacy vinyl record launch @ KM28
The Monte Carlo Fallacy, or Gambler’s fallacy, is “the incorrect belief that, if a particular event occurs more frequently than normal during the past, it is less likely to happen in the future (or vice versa), when it has otherwise been established that the probability of such events does not depend on what has happened in the past” (Wikipedia).
Monte Carlo Fallacy is the result of a collaboration between Nicholas Bussmann and Werner Dafeldecker during lockdown.
Bucking the odds, Bussmann and Dafeldecker revisit two quintessential instruments of the classical tradition, the violoncello and the contrabass, by focussing on their inherent musical qualities, unobstructed by notions of virtuosity or drama. Playing in the anechoic reverb chamber of the global lockdown, they set out to probe the instruments’ fundamental sonic potential above and beyond their illustrious musical past.
