ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the liner notes, written by Barry Cleveland:
"Guitarists Kevin Kastning and Mark Wingfield both strive to transcend the traditional limitations of their instruments, albeit in very different ways. Kastning typically plays custom acoustic instruments such as 12-string extended baritone, 12-string alto, and his recently acquired 14-string Contraguitar. Wingfield eschews the typical magnetic pickups and amplifier in favor of digital technology that enables him to alter the attack, sustain, resonance, and other timbral characteristics of his electric, allowing him to, for example, articulate notes and phrases more like a horn or woodwind player than a guitarist. To fully appreciate this music it is necessary to listen and not just to hear. Those expecting to be met with prosaic guitar tones and gestures, or to be entertained, may experience difficulty. But open-minded listeners who surrender to the music’s subtle gravitational pull will find themselves entering hitherto unexplored realms of extraordinary beauty and multidimensionality. Sonic automatic writing may appear in the audio ether, revealing intricate and frequently sublime structures within which dynamic lines interact across parallel planes, touching here, diverging there, while traversing shimmering harmonic clusters, dark pools of brooding dissonance, swirling eddies of polytonality, delicate microtonal wave fluctuations, and myriad serendipitous harmonic confluences...."
