Notes & Reviews:

The World's Longest Melody is a collection of experimental music written for the guitar by composer/guitarist Larry Polansky (b. 1954). These works explore new techniques of experimental intonation, computer composition, and extraordinary and new modes of playing the guitar. The recording is curated, produced and performed by virtuoso Belgian contemporary-music guitarist Toon Callier and features his ensemble ZWERM, and includes for jim, ben and lou (harp, guitar, and percussion) - the premiere recording of this radically difficult work (the percussionist retunes the strings to different just intonations as the piece progresses).
