pieza para guitarra afinada

pieza para guitarra afinada
para Nick Hoffman & Taku Sugimoto

Recorded at Estudios Madre Selva, Santiago de Chile, April 2018
Composed by Cristián Alvear

Making direct reference to Erik Satie’s enigmatic Vexations, pieza para guitarra afinada is a highly focused exploration of repetition and extreme duration. Utilizing small melodic cells and nontraditional tuning, Alvear crafts a hypnotic, wave-like structure that seems to subtly bend or even suspend the perception of linear time.
