Mark Wingfield & Gary Husband – Tor & Vale (Moonjune 2019)
Guitarist Mark Wingfield has teamed up with British drummer and keyboardist Gary Husband to record a superb album. This time, Husband plays the acoustic piano instead of the more familiar electronic keyboards..
There is a charming chemistry between Wingfield’s quirky, groundbreaking and distorted electric guitar and ambient soundscapes, and Husband’s exquisite piano stylings. It’s unclassifiable music, in between contemporary jazz, progressive fusion and electronica. The duo combines composed works and improvisation.
The album was recorded at one of Leonardo Pavkovic’s favorite studios, Casamurada in Spain, near Barcelona.
Mark Wingfield, Markus Reuter and Asaf Sirkis , three highly-innovative musicians, got together in a studio in Spain to record improvised music with no overdubs. The result is Lighthouse, a genre-defying set of progressive music explorations.
Asaf Sirkis creates powerful, creative beats that support drone guitar sounds and evolving, spellbinding processed guitar improvisations that take the listener to uncharted territory.
The lineup includes Mark Wingfield on electric guitar, Markus Reuter on Touch guitar; and Asaf Sirkis on drums.
Lighthouse is a groundbreaking album by the three musicians at the cutting edge of progressive music.
Fusion guitarist Mark Wingfield delivers an album of cutting edge, high-energy jazz-rock. Wingfield is a virtuoso musician who extracts a wide range of sounds from his guitar, including a fascinating pitch bending sound.
His collaborators on Proof of Light are Yaron Stavi on upright bass and Asaf Sirkis on drums.
Four of today’s finest progressive music artists got together to record an improvised album titled The Stone House. Although the music was not written or rehearsed, it’s not free jazz. Instead, Wingfield, Reuter, Stavi, and Sirkis treat the listener to remarkable electric musical explorations where the four musicians engage in an ongoing creative dialog.
The four instrumentalists constantly cross musical boundaries, injecting ambient electronics, prog rock machinations, psychedelia, jazz-rock and beyond.
The collaboration features British guitarist Mark Wingfield, multifaceted German musician Markus Reuter on Touch Guitars’ AU8 model; bassist Yaron Stavi; drummer Asaf Sirkis.
The Stone House demonstrates the fascinating results of unconstrained musical exploration.
