★λ★     Recorded/produced by Gunther’s Grass, Summer 2017.
★λ★     Cover design by Marcelo Radulovich.Fotka uživatele Ben Tais Amundssen.★λ★     Gunther’s Grass plumbs the imaginary dreamscapes of lost cities, ancient battles and remote frontiers with six new enigmatic improvised assemblages featuring instruments spanning continents and centuries. Gunther’s Grass is a collaborative project by Marcelo Radulovich, Christopher Adler, and Scott Walton that has coaxed lush drones, exotic melodies and grinding noises from their instruments for over a decade.
★λ★     For their second album they are joined by guest artists Jennifer Bewerse (cello on Le Bastille), Nathan Hubbard (vibraphone on Tierra del Fuego), and Eric Starr (trombone on Tarnopol). Marcelo Radulovich performs on the medieval hurdy~gurdy, a keyed string instrument played with a rotating disc, and sculpts each composition with electronic post~production. Marcelo has been active as a musician/producer and multimedia artist since the early 80s, with a multitude of releases, some under his name, many with various bands, and he continues to explore creating hybrids of music and testing boundaries in visual art at Titicacaman Studio. Christopher Adler performs on the khaen, a bamboo free~reed mouth organ from Laos and Thailand, and on single~free~reed pipes from Northern Thailand called pii jum. Christopher is the world’s leading innovator in creating, commissioning and performing contemporary music for the khaen and his work is featured on Tzadik, Innova, and many other labels. Bassist Scott Walton is active in the San Francisco Bay Area creative music scene, and sought after throughout California as an artist whose music negotiates the terrain between jazz, free improvisation, and the classical avant~garde. Bastille Day and Other Lullabies was recorded at locations throughout California and mixed at Titicacaman Studios in Cardiff, CA, in the summer of 2017.

About:
★λ★    
Christopher Adler (born 1972) is a musician, composer and music professor at University of San Diego. A virtuoso player of the khaen, a reed instrument native to Laos and Thailand, he has been composing works for the khaen both as a solo instrument and in combination with western instruments since 1996. His works for solo piano include the three~part Bear Woman Dances, commissioned to accompany a dance depicting a Korean creation myth and largely based the Korean musical system nongak. Four of his compositions have been broadcast internationally on WGBH’s Art of the States series. His composition for sheng, viola and percussion, Music for a Royal Palace, was commissioned by Carnegie Hall for Yo~Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project. An homage to Thailand's Bang Pa~In Palace, the work incorporates traditional Thai melody and embellishments. It was performed at Zankel Hall in 2006 and recorded at the Tanglewood Music Center that same year. His Serpent of Five Tongues for sheng and guanzi (traditional Chinese instruments) premiered at the 2011 MATA Festival.Fotka uživatele Ben Tais Amundssen.
