These eight solo electric guitar performances (some including live-looping) crisscross contemporary classical, modal jazz, and progressive rock spheres with intelligence, verve, and adventurousness. The Swiss guitarist’s crisply distorted and subtly processed tones perfectly match the sophisticated and highly engaging compositions, several of which are based on Olivier Messiaen’s symmetric modes. A book of transcriptions is also available.
