    Description

    "An artist of superlative imagination and technical skill, who has produced just about the best testimonial yet for the remarkable range of the acoustic guitar." - Acoustic Music

    Pierre Bensusan' s sound and style confounds classification. It is profoundly original. His fingerprint is on it whether it is found in his earlier folk and Celtic-based renderings, his free-form improvisational material, or in settings, solo or ensemble. Undoubtedly, a word association game among guitarists would yield the instantaneous response, "DADGAD," at the mention of Pierre's name. Although DADGAD is Pierre's "standard" tuning, he would rather his audiences forgot about that particular detail.

    His music reaches far beyond the idiom of a guitar played in a non-standard tuning. "I don't look at music as being made for a specific instrument," says Pierre. "Music is more sounds than any particular instrument. The guitar just happens to be the mechanical transposition of the music. The important thing about making music - whether it's played on the piano, bass or saxophone - is what do you do with all the musical ingredients you use. It's how you paint with those colors. It's what you express. It's something that is beyond the notes, beyond the simple idea of one sound related to one place in one time. The notes are the same all around the world, but the way you put notes together must be something very personal -- your own story"

    Titles include: Suite Flamande, Nice Feeling, Four A.M., La Femme Cambre, Shi Bhig Shi Mhor, The Last Pint and Flamorgan Aire
