I think this record will become one of my favorites, as it is the most spontaneous project I have ever done. There is no pre-advance work.  I was in a studio working on a record project with a friend, when we finished recording an hour earlier. I took advantage of the extra time and asked Boris, the engineer, if I could play some solo pieces and record live on 2 track. Which he agreed to. So I started playing freely some improvised songs.
Also I was playing on a 7-string guitar that belongs to Martine Montassier (she also made the 8-string guitar which I usually play with) I was actually just trying her classical guitar.
Those improvisations were not cut or edited and they presented here as they were played. More than improvisations, I wanted these pieces to be spontaneous compositions that reflect the precise moment where they were played.
I hope you will enjoy this album as much as I had the pleasure of making it.
