ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Trickle was written by Canadian-born composer and soprano saxophonist Rob Mosher in the summer of 2005. It wasn't however, until he met Australian guitarist Rupert Boyd in 2009 that he revisited the piece and re-worked it into its final version. They recorded the piece, overdubbing two of Boyd's performances, in 2010.

A departure from Mosher's more customary classical and jazz inspired melodies, Trickle is an exploration of harmony and sound color. Inspired by the contrasting timbrel qualities of open and fretted strings on the guitar, Mosher captures these nuances in the piece written for two classical guitars so that the sound of the two parts ebb and flow to create one melodic rhythm. While the harmonic progression is fully arranged, he leaves the arpeggiation, rhythm and articulation entirely to the discretion of the performer. The result is a stochastic performance that is both orchestrated and improvised, playful yet profound; and above all, hauntingly beautiful.

About Rob Mosher:

A melodic, lyrical composer and performer, Rob Mosher is a musician well versed in the jazz and classical worlds. Specializing on soprano sax, English horn and oboe, his unique voice and compositional style have a history of genre fluidity. The recipient of a 2009 ASCAP Young Composer Award, his critically lauded debut, Storytime – The Tortoise, has been called "heartbreakingly beautiful, with melodies that stop the listener in their tracks" by the Hartford Courant. – www.robmosher.com

About Rupert Boyd:

Rupert Boyd is acclaimed as one of the most talented guitarists of his generation. He has been described by The Washington Post as "truly evocative", and by Classical Guitar Magazine as "a player who deserves to be heard." His debut album Valses Poéticos is considered "musically and technically flawless" by Soundboard magazine, which also described the eponymous track as "one of the best recorded performances of this work on guitar." – www.rupertboyd.com
