POZITIF - Turkish guitarist Erdem Helvacioglu continues to break new ground for the guitar as an artisan’s tool with Black Falcon—his 2010 collaboration album with sound artist Ros Bandt, famous for her work on a long neck instrument called the Tarhu. Thanks to his earlier acclaimed releases—including his recent CD with Swedish composer Per Boysen entitled Sub City 2064—Erdem has built up quite a stellar reputation among music listeners who appreciate challenging avant gard guitar music. On the 2011 CD release of Black Falcon, Erdem redefines the role of the electric guitar—performing the guitar within the context of a challenging mix of new music, ambient electronics, electro-acoustic soundtrack music and more. Ms. Bandt is the perfect collaborator for Erdem’s wide screen musical palate and for fans of this kind of music, Black Falcon is an album to listen to over and over again. www.RosBandt.com
