kirill shirokov - self land's stain's II

'self-land's stains II' is a minimalist piece for one guitar by young russian contemporary composer kirill shirokov. this music is minimalist in every sense. this recording is the only time it has ever been performed, and it consists of a series of widely spaced, round, ringing single notes from an electric guitar.

the effect is unsettling, like the slow, nervous pace of horror movie scores can be, but the tone of the guitar is smooth. the listener is left to contemplate the silence left behind as one note dies away and wonder when the next will toll out.
