BRAND NEW DIGITAL-ONLY ALBUM. NEVER BEFORE RELEASED! FMP E 907 . A solo guitar album with a difference - Hirt conjures an armada of sounds you'd hardly associate with the instrument. Moving between aggressive squalls of distortion and spare meditative passages - and plenty in-between - these pieces coalesce into intriguing compositional shapes.
"Hirt has committed himself very consciously to the production of sounds that are not expected from a guitar. Hard to believe that he produces this sound-world as a soloist; he sometimes sounds lie a whole gamelan orchestra.”
"Thrift and opulence - Erhard Hirt likes to put one against the other, combining passages with different characteristics into a spectrum of idiosyncratic guitar pieces. The reason why his comparatively modest devices seem so astonishing is that he only uses them in a targeted and musical manner and can also deal with the acoustic sound in an individual way."
