It is rare that one finds a recording like no other: music with such a unique texture and sensibility that it offers a new landscape for the mind. This collaboration between American guitarist Tibbets and Swedish violinist Hamre forges folk tunes into abstract soundscapes where melody is just out of reach, but still haunts your perception. Producers Tibbets and Marc Anderson layer the music with additional strings and subtle percussion to create something that is not new age, but not traditional: a music that seems deeply rooted in a place, even if that place is ephemeral. Remarkable.
