On a soft summer’s evening, luxuriate in the elegant compositions of guitarist/composer Alexander Turnquist. His instrumentation is unique – a 12-string acoustic finger-picking style that at times suggests the melodic patterns of Philip Glass, yet his harp-like strums give his music a romantic flavor. Piano, vibraphone and violin accompaniment, along with a delicate use of prepared electronics, add a glowing vibrancy. His latest album is Hallway of Mirrors (VHF Records). It has a warm, rich sound, recorded in a large room with natural reverb. His first self-release, back in 2005, was Odd Weather.
