Dominic Miller (UK)

"If you look back over the past several decades, and explore the directions and movements of the guitar scene, it seems as thought a point would have been reached where all progress stopped, as if the guitar would have exhausted all opportunities.  New boundaries will be crossed by artists who are thinking beyond all traditional framework.  Those who are given the opportunity to combine technical advances by reinterpreting guitar techniques combined through artistic ideas.  We welcome three such artists to this event."

Since 2001, pieces of the London Chamber Group, a regular repertoire. As a guitarist plays quite differently and how to compose. Minimalist style, improvisation senkiéhez can not be compared, usually between 6 and 12-string baritone guitars to play. Without exaggeration, that in the United States, he is one of the most modern guitarist. In 2005, he met and Sandor Szabo has made 3 albums in the U.S. Gray Disc Records. The albums have appeared in professional Bartókjaiként mentioned duójukat echoes of guitar music, who released the music played on guitar and megszokásoktól primitive beidegződésektől. Sándor Szabó and Kevin Kastning ethereal sound of a two-fold and deep musicality promises a real treat for fans of the modern guitar."
