Falling For Ascension by Markus Reuter
The latest album from Germany-based composer, touch guitarist Markus Reuter. Reuter, who works with Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto in the group Stick Men, collaborates with the progressive groove Swiss group SONAR and electro-exotic musician Tobias Reber.
ECM artist Nik Bärtsch – who’s Ronin Records label releases this cd in Europe – says of Reuter’s latest effort, ”What we hear is the mystic materialization of a visionary, abstract mind. One that can dance.”
Reuter institutes Robert Fripp-like steel shredding leads with the Touch Guitar methodology...” - All About Jazz
Reuter is not easily equated with another artist and is firmly in possession of his own sound.” - Futuresequence
Reuter's conception and realization is brilliant...This is a triumph. More than that it is brilliant, a breakthrough in form and sound.” - Gapplegate Classical-Modern Review
