“This record is what every guitar/drone/crunch/snap,crack and pop afficionado has ever wanted. It’s epic, it’s intimate, it’s a personally served 10 course meal at a table for two at the edge of the Grand Canyon.” Dedicated to Alvin Lucier, with instructions to be played “very soft or very loud,” this features Toral’s trademark sound (lush, interstellar ambiance – not immediately identifiable as guitar-derived) at its finest. Purely radiant and suitable for the ultimate imersion, this is an artifact of sonic genius.
