ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A review of "Eleven Rooms," Kevin Kastning & Mark Wingfield's previous album:

Eleven Rooms is filled with a wide range of sonic surprises! Great work, I think it's the best collaboration yet with Mark Wingfield..."
Releasing a CD every year for the past five years, Mark Wingfield and Kevin Kastning return to the recording world with the 2015 CD release of Eleven Rooms. Improving with every album release, the duo hit yet another new high with Eleven Rooms. There’s always some concept or approach taken with every one of their album releases, and on the eleven track Eleven Rooms, the concept focuses upon the works of the obscure Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675). From the liner notes of Eleven Rooms, the duo add, “For most of the pieces on this recording, we placed prints of Vermeer’s paintings in front of us while we recorded.” While all of the albums by Wingfield and Kastning have certain similar sonic elements of surprise, perhaps the most illuminating aspect on Eleven Rooms is the excellent sound quality they achieve in Kastning’s Studio Traumwald in the Boston area, while Wingfield deftly handles the mixing and mastering in The Gravity Factory in the U.K. Renowned for his avant garde excursions that feature custom guitars, with astronomical amounts of strings, Kastning’s guitar setup is relatively modest here with the CD featuring his 36 string Double Contraguitar, the 30 string Contra-Alto guitar, 6 string classical guitar and mandolin. The mandolin sound, unheard on earlier albums, adds in yet another new sonic texture and in and of itself it adds in a kind of impressionistic Americana sound in places. On the fast track towards becoming a world renowned jazz-rock fusion electric guitarist Wingfield, fresh from his 2014 album Proof Of Light, sounds quite energized throughout Eleven Rooms, never dominating the soundstage or over saturating the audio spectrum—instead adding sonic depth, with ample reverb that brings towering drama to Kastning’s geometric, multi-string mosaics. Even with a string of fine albums already released by this guitar team, it’s worth restating that Eleven Rooms is the best sounding and most revealing album yet from Kevin Kastning and Mark Wingfield."
