CONCERT NO. 1 of the AMBIcon 2013 CONFERENCE|
Two solo performances:
PEARCE--electronic guitar & spacepiano;
RICH--synths, lap steel guitar, spatial flutes
Based near Indianapolis, JEFF PEARCE is well known among spacemusic fans for his unique approach to the guitar. He has been called "one of the top two electronic guitarists of all time" by Allmusic.com, while reviewer John Diliberto wrote in Billboard magazine that Pearce is "one of the best guitarists to follow the solo electric guitarist concept." With seven full length CDs and tracks on several prestigious anthologies, Pearce "mines the terrain where Ambient, Space and Minimalism converge..." (WIND AND WIRE). He has recently extended this sensibility to the piano. His music extends from deep, dark soundworlds to elegant melodic compositions.
