New Recording: Archipelago for Guitar

Not too long ago, I had the idea to weave a storyline into the performance of a series of guitar pieces. Each piece I wrote seemed to have its own musical ecosystem, so  I called them "islands." Narrating a tale while tuning the guitar between "islands" would draw the...
