Exposition

Eon: Blurring lines on a small (time-) travel guitar (2019)

Andreas Aase

About this exposition

A simple reconfiguring of a mass-produced guitar results in an affordable and comfortable instrument that straddles the gap between the fiddle and the classical guitar. The instrument’s playability gives birth to a new set of eight guitar compositions with two main components throughout: Partly reworked versions of eclectic ideas from my youth decades ago, partly new melodies and improvisations inspired by Scandinavian traditions. A long-held desire for softer dividing lines and cross-bleed between disparate bodies of musical material is expressed in a process of composition, performance and recording that simultaneously redefines memory, dreams and connotations. The artistic results constitute the primary text and will be represented as videos and sound clips throughout. The written text leads up to, and/or comments on, the artistic issues tackled in the videos.
