Album Notes
The Bosch Institute is a duo comprised of musician/composer Daniel Arite and poet and orator Thandiwe Shiphrah. Together they produce engaging listening experiences for lovers of new music and those who revel in language's lyricism. The use of traditional instruments like guitar, keyboard and banjo, mixed with household percussion, water and vocal utterances, gives a broad range of color to their sound. Their work is characterized by a playful inventiveness that results from the variety of compositional methods, multi-tracking and electro-acoustic techniques used to create their "audio collages." Each piece breaks through the familiar structures of music and explores the musical possibilities of poetry.

Daniel Arite (pronounced a-ree-tee) has been featured in venues around the US and on public radio. Drawing from broad influences and the guitar's ancient roots, Dan moves effortlessly from chaotic improvs to celestial meditations. His arrangements of traditional music, jazz, and original compositions are lush with textures and colors that reveal the beauty and versatility of the instrument.

Daniel studied classical guitar with renowned acoustic/classical guitarist Michael Chapdelaine at the University of New Mexico. In 2000, he performed in a rare CD recording with the legendary Cecil Taylor, which was produced during a residency with the jazz great at the Atlantic Center for the Arts. He performed with the Arcadian Duet, a classical guitar duo (1985 to 1991); and was a member of the eclectic music group, Volk Verk, playing electric guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and banjo. Dan is also a founder of Grass Soup, “a bluegrass band that tried not to sound like a bluegrass band.” Several of his original compositions are included on Grass Soup’s CD, Have a Bowl, released in 1997.

Dan is also a visual artist. His artwork is in galleries, private collections and in the collections of institutions.

Frank Emerson Lyne

sensual, baroque, ice melting
In Situation,Thandiwe Shiphrah makes dictionary definitions of commonplace words sound deeply erotic. In the tone poem Unfolding, Enfolding, Daniel Arite's music at times made my head bob from front to back at one cadence and side to side at another cadence. I can't normally do that.

Storm the unpredictable

4 1/2 stars!!!!!
Very original compositions as well as spiritually soothing. The poetry was extremely well written, with out being overly complex. It will require repeat listenings to catch everything, however that is part of the beauty that lies within Thandiwe's voice which matches her style of poetry perfectly. The instrumental only pieces are very well put together and will make you wonder just what instrumentation was used to create all the unique sounds involved in it's production. The instrumentation also matches the lyrical content and mood beautifully. I look forward to hearing more from this unique and inspiring duo, as well as seeing them perform live.
