Fred Frith uses the guitar, in combination with objects, as a medium for groundbreaking narrative improvisations. ‘An extraordinary sound source for decades’ (The Guardian).
Fred Frith’s solo improvisations are like narratives in sound or voyages of discovery. His main instrument is the guitar, but not as you know it—he manipulates his sound by sliding objects such as drum sticks, bows, metal objects and resonant bowls along, or placing them on or between, his guitar strings. He has been giving solo performances all over the world since releasing his album Guitar Solos in 1974.
