————————————————————————–
The Catalan guitarist Ferran Fages was introduced to avant-garde audiences
by Ernesto Rodrigues¹ reputed Creative Sources label.
Despite the imprint¹s history in quiet, scaled-down experimental music, «A
Cavall Entre Dos Cavalls» comes as a surprise. This set of electric guitar
solos (13 titles, two more unannounced) is very listener friendly: gentle,
mostly tonal, pleasant. Ferran¹s short pieces (written pieces, not
improvisations as could be expected) involve slow strumming and chord
variations presented thoughtfully. Loren Mazzacane Connors comes immediately
to mind, along with Ernesto Diaz-Infante¹s first albums (of piano music, but
with the same kind of naivete) and Steffen Basho-Junghans (his ³Virgin
Orchestra² series). Maybe also the softness of Ben Monder (minus the jazz
element). The album is strongly inhabited by a sense of discovery, of
finding one¹s true self as the notes and chords are delicately played. A
first listen highlights the prettiness of it all, while giving the
impression that substance is lacking — and the short duration of the album
(33 minutes and a half) contributes to the latter. But subsequent listens
dispel the vagueness in aim and reveal that the prettiness will not fade
with time. What at first sounds like pointless meanders is ultimately heard
as a clear statement. A statement that happens to be easy on the ears and
prone to meditation. François Couture (All Music Guide)
