Undergrowth: Electronic Improvisations On Acoustic Guitar

The latest in an ongoing series exploring the frontiers of acoustic guitar...

Every sound on this experimental ambient EP was improvised on a Martin D35 with hardware effects and loops, recorded in one take and then edited for time.

Live from Arcata, California, 28 July 2010 and dedicated to Julia Kathleen of World Famous Productions, in whose living room this music was born.

Michael Garfield remixes the familiar conventions of acoustic music, welding fingerstyle technique into a cybernetic bed of live hardware production – transcending the categories of organic and digital, past and future, artist and instrument. Open your ears and let your mind flower.

released 28 September 2010
