about

"This is the final release on the Space Program series, which started with SPACE (2006). Ten releases were originally projected, but i found these six items (besides Space, three volumes of the collaborative Space Elements series and now the second in the Solo series) have fulfilled the ideas i wanted to explore in a sustained and systematic way. For a number of other reasons i decided that i will be able to move with more room and freedom outside this structure that is now completed. The Solo series are meant to be a reference to my solo performance at these times, on various instruments. Space Solo 2 showcases a different set of instruments from Space Solo 1.

Regada, January 2017"

All tracks are edited recordings of real-time solo performance. As a rule in the Space Program, there is no precessing or transformation of sounds, all sounds are heard as originally played (except for mastering sound calibration). There is no "programming" (as in sequencers or digital devices), no samples or software involved (except editing and mastering software and except tracks 9, 10, 11).
