ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Original compositions for solo guitar combining elements of Flamenco, Classical and Minimalist styles, including three innovative works for a four string classical guitar.

BODEGA DUNES is an exciting collection of compositions for solo guitar inspired by the natural beauty of a small town on California's north coast. Borrowing techniques used in Flamenco, finger-style acoustic guitar as well as "classical music", the artist has created a musical diary and portrait of his experience of the aural and visual landscape of the dunes and the sea that is not only meditative but also rich in harmonic color, lyrical melodies and rhythmic complexity. Like the ocean itself, at times passionate and agitated, other times calm and reflective, infinite in its subtle variations and full of intimate details. A marvelous expression of "place" over time.
Frank has worked as an accompanist since the early 1980's starting with the Flamenco's de la Bodega in San Francisco's North Beach as well as in Sevilla Spain with the Dance company of Andres Marin. He has also worked on some "Flamenco Fusion" projects including the guitar duo Arabesque as well as his own ensemble with flute, violin, bass and percussion called HARVEST. Most recently he has performed with the soprano Vismaya Lhi doing music from the Medieval period, Brazilian composers, Garcia Lorca, as well as new compositions by Dusan Bogdanovic. Frank has also composed music for small ensembles including a Fandango for Saxophone quartet and electronic music built from his own sound samples. Although having composed music for guitar for over thirty years this is his first solo release.
CD includes full color eight page insert of evocative artwork and photos.

"I can not imagine a recording introducing a more original, mature, imaginative, diverse in musical ideas and emotions, yet complete as a whole, body of work...6 is a masterpiece. It is unusual, seemingly doesn't follow any structure, but
it has urgent emotional intensity. It is contemplative, obviously difficult to execute, one of those pieces of art where a person's sense of time is forced to stop. Haunting."
-J. Huptych

"Tremolo is a beautiful classical work."
-Susana, Dancevert

"a ti se te ve que sientes "y entiendes" el flamenco. Tus toques son llenos de impulso flamenco...
Tu musica es sensacional! ENHORABUENA!"
Juan Antonio Torres, Premio National de España
