Bill Orcutt

Bill Orcutt is a virtuoso guitarist from the US whose playing combines the very rich history of American guitar folk with the physicality and noise of free jazz. For this reason he stands out as a very unique character in both fields of music, his work being both melodic and emotionally rich yet very expressive and explosive, and often free from rhythm and traditional structures. This piece, an improvisation performed specifically for this series, is an example of his more melodic and meditative playing, serving as a calming force, as the home made video exemplifies, a reflection on the subtle comfort found in certain everyday activities.
