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.
Kármán Lines by Elliott Sharp, BandCamp, 2021 on #neuguitars #blog
The “Kármán line” is both an abstract construct and a geopolitical definition created to delineate the upper border of Earth’s atmosphere and the beginning of “outer space”. These new compositions by Elliott Sharp extend the abstraction to manifest a series of sonic meditations on this zone and the vectors representing the physical forces present there.
Kármán Lines was performed on a Godin Duet Multiac electroacoustic guitar modified with a fretless neck and tuned in the baritone range. Sharp uses a selection of extended techniques as well as the EBow but no other preparations or objects.
