Biography

8VB (reads “an octave below”) is the authorial project by bassist, composer and arranger Bruno Migliari and guitarist - composer Chester Harlan. In music terminology, “8VB” defines when a passage of written music is to be played an octave below. To some instruments - notoriously the bass and the guitar - this transposition occours all the time, since written passages to be played on those instruments allways sound an octave below. Regardless of the theoretical explanation above, the music Bruno Migliari & Chester Harlan make together values that witch is low, rhythmic and lyrical, sometimes subverting the hierarchy of the sound spectrum by puting the bass on top to present a theme, sometimes striping down the music to it’s bare minimun to expose it’s lyrical core. Dosing lyricism and swing (in a more encompassing sense) the duo works within a jazz context, bleding strong rhythmic elements from vernacular brazilian music together with funk and contemporary pop.
