Closing chords of potential songs one after the other, for acoustic guitar and a loudspeaker in a room. The pieces are constructed out of the transition from one open tuning to another and are inspired by Bolero songs from the 1970s. Recorded in the artist’s studio in Berlin.

“Its minimal improvisation poses an intimate relationship with naked notes, left transparent” (
“Top 10 Releases of 2019” (Joyful Union Cassette Blog)
“The balance between the clear sustains and the sizzle and distortion around the edges is wonderful. Excellent work all around” (Brian Olewnick, Just Outside)

Rubén D’Hers is a guitarist and sound artist from Venezuela, currently living in Berlin. He uses stringed musical instruments and mechanical objects to evoke a sense of space and to reconstruct harmonic qualities from sounds of the indoor environment. |
