In his continuing exploration of the limits of sound, Elliott Sharp presents The Velocity of Hue, a collection of pieces performed on enhanced acoustic guitar. This music, shaped by Sharp's personal sonic vocabulary of textures, densities and groove, also filters the string traditions of central Asia, India and North Africa, country blues and the “American Primitive" strain of John Fahey and Robbie Basho.

“If much of his previous work has found beauty in extremes of intensity," writes Time Out NYC, “he reverses course here, creating a cumulative intensity from extremes of beauty."
