AK020 – HOUSE WIND – Locusts Make Honey: Melodies for Prepared Guitar
A 16-track suite of altered, prepared, and shifted guitar tones evoking ‘familiar strangeness’, magic, and the ungovernable. Mirroring the aleatory spectrum of sounds heard in nature, these melodies also affect a temporal and cultural shift, suggesting kinship with older music traditions, particularly non-Western ones, like Gamelan and Japanese shamisen and koto. Locusts Make Honey pulses, buzzes, and enlightens.
Limited cassette run of 70 out June 1st. Come catch a live performance and pick up a copy at the Toast Collective Sat June 1st.
