This set of pieces began as an attempt to get my music into a New York gallery for an exhibit of new abstract art. Although unsuccessful as a submission, I was delighted with the beginning results and decided to pursue the concept further. I had wanted for some time to do a guitar-oriented CD since working on my contribution to the 2003 compilation, "TENSILE," which I co-produced, and released in 2003. I recorded a short guitar improvisation into my laptop. The file was chopped into...
