Alex Turnquist + Eric Carbonara + Colin Fisher
ALEX TURNQUIST (http://alexanderturnquist.com/)
Spectral guitar flourishes twangy in constant motion. Notes like foot steps mapping the patterns of an intricate dance. Guitarist Alex Turnquist creates beautiful clusters of sound, defined by the silence or lack there of that surrounds them. Grandiose, haunting, yet somehow touching & warm, his music not only is a whirlwind of technical mastery, but it alludes to something more, the organic workings of the human sphere never laid to rest.
ERIC CARBONARA (http://www.ericcarbonara.org/)
Philly guitarists' slow meditative compositions move through repetitive states, revealing warm melodies, that meander, almost absent mindedly. Pulling influences from flamenco shreddery & melding it with modern folk tangents & a sense for experimentation, Eric pushes the acoustic guitar from beautiful passages of juxtaposed notes to angular string bending jabs. A true give & take, inflicting the wound, only to practice sewing it up in the most pleasing way.
COLIN FISHER (http://elfinchoirs.blogspot.ca/)
The man, the legend, your friend & buddy! Toronto's gregarious guitar guru, poised in the territory between avant jazz noddlery, psych iconoclasm & the folk traditions of culture past & present. Humble in the presence of peace, but never one to turn down a dance with chaos, Colin's guitar work moves through effects laden articulations into psychedelic soundscapes, and blistering walls of feedback & notes crushed against each other & then left to flounder in a sea of raw energy. 1/2 of Not The Wind, Not The Flag, come make the hang.
