  • elliott sharp: haptikon
        (2013, cd, italy, long song records)
American multi-instrumentalist and composer Elliott Sharp has been a central figure in the New York avant-garde and experimental music scene since the late seventies.

He has made numerous albums and his compositions have been performed by the HR-Sinfonieorchester, The Ensemble Modern and The Kronos Quartet, to name a few.

His latest release, "Haptikon", is out on the italian Long Song Records label. The electric guitar gets the significant role on "Haptikon". Accompanied by computer generated soundscapes, Elliott Sharp explores jazz, blues, rock and indian music, with a focus on the melodical and lyrical aspects.

Very impressive.

Recommended listening.

Available from Mandaï.
