This Compact Disc is a stereo reduction of an eight channel sound installation that I made for the Venice Architecture Biennale and Fittja Open in Stockholm, commissioned by Botkyrka Konsthalle in Sweden. It is a very different project to One Night on Earth, but uses the same basic material in new, and I hope exciting, ways.

The release of this symphonic guitar album, using 6 and 10 string guitars in multiple layers, will be followed soon by a new solo album of interpretations of kora compositions by a range of composers not represented on One Night on Earth. I hope this keeps you busy in the meantime!

Yours, Derek Gripper
