Album Review

Bukelman, Ido – “Solo” – [Out Now Recordings]

surferrosa   1/4/2012   CD, Jazz

Its beautiful how an acoustic guitar makes so many sounds besides the notes you play with it. On this solo album, Ido Bukelmanexplores guitar sounds more so than music. This album is composed of the acoustic tones of nickel, wood and the occasional human breath or hum. The scraping of wound strings, clicks, taps, vibrations, any sound you can produce an analog instrument. These pieces are improvised and incredibly expressive, utilizing negative space, lulls and growths, chaos and calm. At times the melody and rhythm come together but never fail to fall apart. Check out #5 for some dirty grittiness and a touch of electronics. -Surfer Rosa
