The first project of North Sea Guitars is "The Ark" ('Guitar
by the Sea'), a repertoire of compositions and arrangements
for five acoustic guitars. The music reveals the affection for
a variety of musical styles, including classical, pop, flamenco and Latin-American music. The instruments
are, likewise, not limited to one type of guitar, but exploit
the entire acoustical range: nylon stringed classical and flamenco
guitars, steel-stringed western and gypsy-style guitars, fretted
and fretless bass guitars, requintos and cuatros. This mixture
of styles, guitars and techniques (classical and flamenco, finger
picking, slide and alternate picking) result in a unique blend
of new and amazing acoustic guitar sounds.
"The Ark" is available on CD that can be ordered on the
site of NAIM. Information about concert dates, the musicians, the instruments
and the nine tracks on the album can be found on this site, including
30-second samples of each track.
Information about the concerts in the Dutch region is given
to you in the native language, because that concerns only,
or mainly, the Dutch audience. The music itself wants to cross
every existing and non-existing border in our solar system.
Pluto, here we come!
