Re:Guitar was composed in 1999 and premiered in Tbilisi, Georgia. This piece is an imaginary trip through different musical landscapes.
A chromatically descending line of natural harmonics serves as the basis for a constant metamorphosis that leads the listener through stylistic areas, which can be likened to jazz, European avant-garde, middle-Eastern folklore and Indonesian gamelan. Only once, at the very end, the piece reveals itself as a “real,” quasi classical, guitar piece.
Re:Guitar uses just intonation in which the strings are tuned to the overtones of a very low E. This tuning lends the guitar a particular resonance.
