Kastning, Kevin/Mark Wingfield: The Line to Three

What do you get when two completely innovative guitarists cross paths? In this case the results are what we would expect from American musician Kevin Kastning and British guitarist Mark Wingfield. On the duo's latest effort The Line to Three, their fifth overall, we have a melding of Kastning's classical acoustic guitar and Wingfield's ethereal electric notes, cool effects and other otherworldly soundscapes.

These aren't really songs, at least not in the traditional sense. Both musicians give their own interpretation of experimental/avant-garde music with their hypnotic tones and unusual acoustic and electronic soundscapes. This disc will not reel you in in a melodic sense but these are intriguing sound collages for those into more experimental fare.

The album has a running time of almost seventy-four minutes so there is a lot to explore here. I suggest listening on headphones to totally submerse yourself in all these two musicians have to offer.

For you equipment junkies out there you may want to further explore the 30 and 15-string guitars, both invented by Kastning.

The musicians and gear:

Kevin Kastning (30-string contra-alto guitar, 15-string extended classical guitar,
piano, percussion)
Mark Wingfield (electric guitar, live electronics, pre-recorded soundscapes)
