Acoustic alchemy

This fall will see the release of his collaboration with the avant-garde lute player Jozef van Wissem on the AudioMER label — you can hear a preview track on the label’s MySpace page. At the time of our conversation, he was in the midst of recording his next solo album. And though he continues to experiment, adding different instruments and textures, it will still be a solo-guitar record. “It’s what I’ve become most comfortable with,” he says of the 12-string, “but by the same token, I’m not beyond shaking that up a bit. I think on the next recording there will be some surprises for people. I’ve got a few ideas.”

SUSANNA BOLLE is the host of Rare Frequency on WZBC 90.3 FM and is one of the curators of the Non-Event Experimental Music Series.
