The Essential Advent Calendar: December 19 – Guitarist Markus Reuter Releases First Christmas Album

Poly-disciplinary musician and touch guitarist Markus Reuter has just released his first Christmas album, ‘Winter Solstice’ – a free, limited-availability-period recording of five traditional Christmas songs (each of which has been given Markus’ distinctive loop/solo/soundscape treatment).

As with much of Markus’ music, the pieces are accessible and enjoyable while concealing hidden depths. Beneath and behind Markus’ soulful touch guitar renditions of the original melodies, billowing detailed soundscapes are built on re-examinations and explorations of the pitch series of each tune. Listeners can enjoy the simple snowfall, or choose to tunnel deeper into the ice kingdom. A parallel universe… strangely hypnotizing.



The album is available for free download from Bandcamp between 17th and 31st December 2018 (and is available long-term as a free 5.1. surround sound version from Surround Music.
