Ted Killian, electric and acoustic guitars, samples,
loops; Jeff Kaiser, mixing and mastering
An album whose liner notes quote Edward Abbey against metaphysical idealism is probably not going to contain middle of the road smooth Jazz! Here in eleven tracks, Ted Killian explores the terrain first charted by the likes of Robert Fripp and Fred Friff. Making generous use of electronic effects, Killian creates soundscapes alternatingly terrifying and beautiful. All in all a recording for lovers of extreme guitar and experimental sounds. Nicely packaged.
