Notes & Reviews:

'Guitar music' takes on a new meaning. Norwegian composer Bjørn Fongaards works, as they are known through his own recordings, have attained a special place on the international contemporary music scene. Quarternote scales, unique performance techniques on the electric guitar in combination with overdubs have fascinated composers and musicians alike. Anders Førisdal has submerged himself into the esoteric and innovative playing techniques and highly cryptic notation to be found in the actual scores of Fongaaard over many years. Based on this intense exploration he is now releasing the very first interpretation of Fongaards unusual scores, and thus introduces this music into the realm of performance tradition. Brian Ferneyhough, Øyvind Torvund and Ole-Henrik Moe, also contributes with hommage works to Fongaard on this release.
