OoN!  - Ariane Cap & Paul Hanson 

Bass and bassoon are not your usual musical duo partners. But when Paul and Ariane met and talked about how they have both been using their instruments beyond their traditional roles, they felt an immediate kinship on so many levels. They agreed that what matters most is the music and not the 'tool'. They could relate how one could just fall in love with a sound. They understood the challenge and joy of hearing something inside and bending the instrument beyond its intended techniques to create new sounds. 

They both went digging into their piles of favorite compositions and came together to jam and experiment. As soon as music started speaking it became apparent that they had a unique sound! Their shared appreciation for diverse styles immediately took them around the world, to the past and into the present. Above all what made it click was their huge appreciation for melody, and - equally above all - their huge appreciation for groove. In record time they put together a set of music that is fiery and fresh, interesting and unexpected, always staying musical, groovy and melodious.

Paul Hanson is a Bay Area-bred world-renown jazz bassoonist and saxophonist known for his diverse career with artists such as Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Cirque Du Soleil, DAVKA,  St Josephs Ballet, Zenith Patrol, The Klezmorim, Paul Dresher Ensemble, Jonas Hellborg, Dennis Chambers, Eddie Money (sax soloist on "Take Me Home Tonight") and Boz Scagg .

Ariane Cap is a multi instrumentalist, educator and composer. An eclectic and versatile bassist she has covered many styles, from Jazz, to Folk and Flamenco (Muriel Anderson), to classical music (The Mozart Band), African (The Palm Wine Boys), Celtic (Tempest) to Punk Rock (The Sippy Cups), Rock (Keith Olsen), and Cirque du Soleil. With OoN she plays a six string bass featuring tapping styles and effects to broaden the soundscape.
