DYSRHYTHMIA Guitarist Releases Solo Album

Guitarist Kevin Hufnagel of Philadelphia's progressive instrumental trio DYSRHYTHMIA has released his first full-length solo album, "Songs for the Disappeared", via his own imprint Nightfloat Recordings.

According to a press release, "Songs for the Disappeared" is "an album which seeks to unify eclectic and exploratory uses of the acoustic guitar into a cohesive and gripping whole. Tracks like the exotic 'Hunter/Hunted' and 'Insects Will Tell' build layer upon layer of rhythmically propulsive sound through the use of 'prepared guitar' (the act of altering the instruments timbre by placing various objects on or between the strings). In contrast are pieces like the haunting 'The Bridge' and 'Twilight Clocks'; solo guitar works at their most naked and stark. Bridging the gap between the two are atmospheric interludes such as 'Night In Reverse' and 'Will They Find Me' which make use of various Echoplex looping techniques and electronic processing of acoustic guitar to an almost choral effect."

Besides DYSRHYTHMIA, Kevin has written and recorded with BYLA, an experimental/ambient project featuring DYSRHYTHMIA bassist Colin Marston. In the summer of 2005, Kevin was introduced to filmmaker Kevin McCann who was looking for acoustic guitar-based music for his film "Awake". The experience of working with film and a director was very rewarding and something Kevin wishes to do more of in the future.
