ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Internationally acclaimed guitarist Bill Walker's debut CD, Sanctuary, is rich musical tapestry of moods and textures imbued with a deep lyricism, and a broad spectrum of stylistic influences. Elements of ambient, and electronic music meld with jazz, rock, blues, americana and world music to create a style that is not easily categorized. Bill refers to his music as Guitronica and recorded this CD live in the studio, using live looping techniques to create his distinctive multilayered sound. This is evocative music that is both modern and timeless. Sanctuary was produced by Turkish composer,multi-instrumentalist/producer Erdem Helvacioglu, Bill's collaborator on the critically acclaimed CD "Fields and Fences". Bill and Erdem were recently featured in the December 2012 issue of Guitar Player magazine.

Fluid, inspired guitar-based masterpiece recorded live!
I have been listening to this CD since hearing Bill live at the NW Loopfests in Portland and Seattle, and the Y2K13 Live Looping Festival in Santa Cruz. I enjoy watching how Bill uses effects and live looping to present a kaleidoscope of guitar-infused music. His live set is inspiring and emotional, his technique shows mastery of improvisational and structured styles on electric guitar and lap steel. I'm very glad to discover his sonic art and look forward to hearing him live again. He presents a personable on-stage persona that draws every audience member into his world of magical tones and modalities, "the sensory channels or pathways through which individuals give, receive, and store information". Do not miss the chance to see Bill perform live and grab a copy of this CD - I highly recommend "Sanctuary" by Bill Walker, a fluid, inspired guitar-based masterpiece!
