Description: Evocative, nocturnal music, sometimes of dreams, sometimes of nightmares, unusual sounds from scordatura tuning which allows quarter-tones and eighth-tones (making two instruments sound like a string orchestra), with overheated and entertaining notes from the editor of much of his music published by Editions Salabert. Three first recordings. Robert Black (double bass).
