San Francisco composer/improviser Ernesto Diaz-Infante and Brooklyn's Chris Forsyth, known for his critically-acclaimed guitar work in such groups as psi and All Time Present, are frequent collaborators and key figures in the American underground scene. (as is stated...), their 4th studio recording in 4 years, continues and extends their joint investigation of the full range of the guitar. A kaleidoscopic range of approaches, including quiet modal folk-influenced fingerpicking, atonal noise, drones, pointilistic micro-melodies, lower-case electro-acoustic improv, and feedback are juxtaposed as they subtly bridge the gap between composition and free improvisation, creating a thoroughly unified, wholly unclassifiable music in the process.
