Philip Graham A single violin and looping technology create a haunting marriage of stillness and movement. Reminds me of Paul Giger's Chartes, and what could be higher praise than that? Favorite track: Vesper I.

"Qoheleth" is a selection of live recordings taken during September 2012. These recordings capture one-shot improvisations made on the violin, chronicling moments of bare expression, live composition, and spiritual reflection through sound. These rough sketches, lashings-out, praises, meditations.. are free to download, but donations are gratefully accepted!
