A collection of Guitar improvisations orchestrated and re-composed for small Ensembles. This album is kind of my ideal vision of a band I have wanted to be in for a very long time. Each piece is quite different while hopefully maintaining an overall sonic vision. Most pieces consist of a repeated modal phrase, while instruments follow the melodic progression and support the gesture or improvise over it.
I would like to thank the amazing musicians who contributed to this recording. It was a joy and an honor.
