*200 copies limited edition. In process of stocking* "These performances are all about the process, about exploration and they more than once reminded me of a quote by Derek Bailey about the creation process as a kind of jigsaw puzzle: “Emptied out of the box, there’s a heap of pieces, all shapes, sizes and colors, in themselves attractive and could add up to anything— intriguing. Figuring out how to put them together can be interesting, but what you finish up with as often as not is a picture of unsurpassed banality. Music’s like that.” Whether you agree or not with the closing remark, there is no denying that this kind of improvised music is about disappearing in the moment." - Guy Peters
'Solo Acoustic Guitar Improvisations II & III' is volume 2 and 3 in a series Dirk Serries is recording in honor of the Höfner archtop guitars. A couple of years ago Dirk fell in love with the acoustic guitar and specifically the Höfner brand for its specific and unique harsher sound their vintage archtop guitars hold. It's definitely far away from Dirk's electric constructions but at the same the acoustic approach is merely another way for him to express his fascination for sound in particular and how you can alter, transform and mutate its original tone by using different playing methods or preparing them with tools and/or tuning the guitar alternatively.
