Redolent Spires is a full-length album in two parts by Madison-based experimental improvisors, composers and brothers, AJ and BC Grimm. The first part is a six-movement suite for cello and guitar, composed and performed as a live score for THE LIVES OF CUT FLOWERS, which premiered May 2011 at the Indy Fringe Theater by paperStrangers Dance/Theater co. The second part is comprised of nine improvisations in four different tunings for guitar and guqin.
The description above is just a brief look at what to expect. Check out the full description on the bandcamp download page, including more information on tunings, modes, and the guqin, an ancient seven-stringed bridgeless zither.
