about

Short pieces in the key scheme of the Well-Tempered Clavier designed to map the correspondence between harmonics, open strings and stopped notes. Density, a central problem in solo guitar performance, is confronted by playing each successive note of a melody on a different string, cloistering an ebb and flow of gathering and receding overtones.

The pieces are intended to unfold into an improvisation, and are interrogated by a computer generated environment of sine tones and subtle live processing.
