Guitars Sound

A carrying presence, clarity of depth, radiant power and light are the guiding principles of my guitar sound. Piano and cello are not my guides – I prefer to emphasise the unique traits of the guitar. In my opinion, these are intimacy, cantability, a richness of colour, transparency and a choral fullness.

Crafting the soundboard, the most important resonant part of the guitar, is the most intensive phase of craftsmanship altogether. This phase is inextricably linked with a process of rapprochement, with immersion, with becoming attuned and permeable while I shape the desired resonance structure with the help of the scraper. I work with the methods of fingering, flexing and knocking, as well as assessing the degree of translucence.
