Lower Lurum


Suddenly, one day, it seemed clear to me that full flowering of music is frustrated by our instruments.

(Ferruccio Busoni)




from Lower Lurum by Hans Reichel

Reichel was a composer, inventor and guitar maker and also worked as a (typeface) designer.
All music on this album was played on a doubleneck guitar and on daxophone.
Subtitled "A Guitar and Daxophone Operetta", this album features Reichel's magnificent custom instruments.

Recorded at the end of December '93 - beginning of January '94
