ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ABOUT THIS CD

Descent to Self is a musical exploration of ideas inspired by themes such as theoretical physics, science fiction, mathematics, and philosophy. By means of real-time looping technology, Krispen Hartung weaves an avant-garde and improvisational tapestry of sounds that are colorful, innovative, and mood provoking. This instrumental work showcases Hartung's ability to fuse avant-garde jazz, experimental, and ambient music into a multi-faceted musical experience.

ABOUT KRISPEN HARTUNG

Krispen Hartung's 25-year musical background is an experimental and continuously evolving road trip marked by many excursions and detours - from classical guitar, progressive rock, and world-beat, to fusion, traditional jazz, and avant-garde. In 1993, Hartung began studying the method of real-time looping, the technique of digitally
recording live performance, playing it back in real-time, and repeating this process indefinitely to produce multiple layers of interweaving and complimentary guitar parts. Since then, he has become one of the North West's most accomplished real-time looping artists and Idaho's leading member of the international looping community Looper's Delight. Hartung's debut solo CD "Places"
was released for sale world-wide in April of 2004 and consists of a series of colorful, innovative, and thought/mood provoking looping compositions that he improvised and recorded on the spot in one take.

As a result of his diverse background and studies, Hartung now exhibits a dynamic and atypical performance style
that integrates multiple genres and gives new meaning to the world of improvisational guitar. His last CD
release is a free improvisational work entitled "Live at the Kulture Klatsch," featuring didjeridu artist and
percussionist Vincent Miresse. In addition to "Descent to Self," Krispen has released a collaboration CD entitled "Xperimentus: Krispen Hartung & Friends," comprised of duo compositions of he and 13 other looping artists from around the world.

Krispen performs frequently at venues that foster artistic expression and diverse human discourse, such as coffee shops, art and music festivals, art galleries, and art exhibits.
