Sharp, Elliott: Haptikon (Long Song Records)
Label: Long Song Records    
Released in: Italy    


"Haptikon is a set of very-electric-guitar pieces accompanied by computer.

Haptikon may be heard as an outgrowth of E#'s Tectonics project. Where Tectonics was a form of psychedelic noise jungle techno played on both saxophones and guitars interacting electronically with computerized grooves and processing, with Haptikon, the focus is on a more melodic and lyrical approach. E# pays homage to improvised traditions in jazz, blues, rock, Indian music, and even country & western! The results are cinematic in scope and give the feeling of a full band. Sharp's virtuosity on guitar and originality as a composer are in full evidence on Haptikon."-Long Song Records
