C JOYNES | MIKE GANGLOFF

English acoustic guitarist C Joynes, a resident of Cambridge, heavy thumb-led finger-picking technique that harks back to traditional country-blues and early ragtime, however, he uses this technique to explore alternative melodic traditions: the English folk-tune; North and West African music; elements of classical Indian music; proto-minimalist and impressionist musics from the European classical tradition. His approach to the recording and compositional process contains a subtle and unassuming experimentation, at times including collaged fragments, field recordings, processing, en-plein-air recordings, and cut-and-paste.

Mike Gangloff is a fiddle player and member of both Pelt and the Black Twig Pickers. His outfit Eight Point Star plays droned-out twang music, with fiddle, guitar and upright bass. Says Paste Magazine of Gangloff: "Hes forever an inbetweener, refusing to reside within any traditional role musically...Hes a newspaperman. A fiddler. A percussionist. And perhaps a musical visionary, the likes of which only a select few happen upon. Find him, though, and its almost impossible that Gangloff wont play a bit of something enjoyable or at least vaguely familiar."
