Album Notes
Lotus Lungs is a trio of three innovative and accomplished guitarists: Matt Benham, Bill Horist and Tom Scully. Individually, they've each stretched the boundaries of the instrument along three dimensions: improvisation, experimentation and tradition. Together, they produce spectacularly varied soundscapes that chart eye-opening new territory.

Based in Seattle, Matt, Bill and Tom have left footprints in jazz, classical, rock, avant garde, free improvisation and experimental music, contributing to a dynamic music scene. In combo they fuel each other, developing themes and sonic textures while drawing from each of those genres. The trio uses three formations: acoustic, electric and prepared guitars. The latter consists of a wide range of sound treatments and techniques that go far beyond conventional modalities of the instrument.

Guitar Improv Summit Vol.1 is a free-flowing musical journey celebrating the world’s most popular instrument, and reminding us that we can still be surprised by what we hear.

Matt Benham - acoustic and electric guitars
