I have in the last year taken the first steps towards developing my own improvising language for the guitar. Through mixing fretted notes, harmonics and open strings I have found a way to playing for long stretches with a good balance between variability and coherence.
At the same time I have expanded this way of playing to include a double bassist, Petter Asbjørnsen, and a drummer, Simon Forchhammer.
For my exam concert we have decided to focus on improvising with perspective on the long form - in this case the timeframe is about 20 minutes, so we have used this as the basis for our rehearsals.
Hein Westgaard - Guitar
Petter Asbjørnsen - Double Bass
