Covid-19 is dangerously impacting the social-economic category of musicians. No concerts, poor political and social consideration, uncertain earnings. As a consequence, an ever-growing number of musicians, especially those from the experimental area, are trying to promote their music on BandCamp in digital format only. It is increasingly difficult for me to follow and review this incredible flow of music. I therefore decided to open this section on my blog Neuguitars where I propose music in digital format that I consider particularly interesting and worthy of attention. I hope you like it. Let’s support musicians. They need it.
Dancetracks for an Improvising Guitarist (Paul Lansky) by Sergio Sorrentino, BandCamp 2020
Dancetracks for an improvising guitarist (1994) by the American composer Paul Lansky (1944)
for electric guitar and computer synthesized tape
Sergio Sorrentino, electric guitar
“Sergio Sorrentino’s version of Dancetracks is excellent! Full of interesting choices, works well with the electronic part, subtle and not over the top. He paces it well and it ends at just the right moment – it does not seem too long, not too short. Sergio Sorrentino is a terrific guitarist and thanks again to Sergio for his terrific work”.
(Paul Lansky – Princeton University)
