Album Notes
Kevin performs solo compositions on acoustic instruments of his own inventions: the 36-string Double Contraguitar, 30-string Contra-Alto guitar, and the 15-string Extended Classical guitar. These instruments have a symphonic depth, with deep harmonic densities. "Otherworld" is at once an emotional and intellectual work.
