Campbell, Neil/Carlo Bowry/Gordon Ross - Philip Glass: Metamorphosis/Steve Reich: Acoustic Counterpoint

"Composer/classical guitarist Neil Campbell teams up with Carlo Bowry (Muffin Men/Wizards of Twiddly) and composer/producer Gordon Ross for a release featuring Philip Glass's composition Metamorphosis (beautifully re-arranged as a classical and electric guitar duet), and Steve Reich's Electric Counterpoint performed with multiple classical guitars and basses.".

"Two of my favourite Minimalist pieces given a fresh perspective. Deviating from its piano origins with a distinctive blend of fluid fingerpicking and wistful electric swells, Campbell and Bowry's guitar-driven Metamorphosis is a seductively mournful version of a timeless and hypnotic piece. As for Acoustic Counterpoint, it stands comparison with Pat Metheny's defining execution of Reich's thrilling composition and that's a significant achievement in itself." - Tim Bowness (No-Man) .

"Neil Campbell has been described by Paul Fowles, Classical Guitar Magazine as 'an outstanding guitarist whose originality of thought makes him far more than just another gifted purveyor of finger acrobatics'. His recent work includes collaborations with Yes vocalist Jon Anderson, electronic musician DJ Yousef and Sense of Sound Singers and he has contributed in performances at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, as part of Liverpool’s famed Irish Sea Sessions. .

Carlo Bowry has astonished audiences across Europe as the guitar ace for the Muffin Men and the Wizards of Twiddly, collaborating with Jimmy Carl Black (Mothers of Invention), Mike Keneally, Napoleon Murphy Brock,Ike Willis, Arthur Brown, Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra's 10:10 Ensemble and Canterbury music legend Kevin Ayers along the way.

Gordon Ross has commissioned new work from Steve Reich, Sir John Taverner and James McMillan and worked with Ian McCulloch, BBC Symphony Orchestra, MTV, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and many others as well as performing at festivals across the UK in recent years."
