"This is an album of solos and duets. Drawing inspiration from his research on African rhythms, Rainer Wiens has written complex pieces that have been magnificently performed by seasoned musicians from the Montreal new music scene."-Ambiances Magnetiques
"Rainer Wiens is a musician focusing on prepared guitar and lamellaphones (plucked idiophones from Africa, called sanza or thumb piano, likembe, mbira or kalimba). He was born in Germany and is currently living in Montréal. He is uncomfortable with the idea of using bios to drop names and impress people."-Ambiances Magnetiques
