"Loren is one of those guitarist who has truly conceived his own instrumental language. That language speaks clearly and purely, and in short clusters of notes says more than most guitarists work says in a lifetime. His genius is rendered in his simultaneously abstract and intuitive improvisations ; whether the work is fragile and quiet or loaded with feedback, it all seethes with a gorgeous lyricism. This is true even of this works which incorporate a good deal of drone, noise and sustained chords and phasing. Still Loren's solo work is as necessary and vibrant as ever, and you owe it to yourself to discover and explore the deep beauty of this guitarist's work." "This started out as a portrait of a person (full of life, I think). But as it developed, I became more and more aware of the impossibility of people ever really connecting with one another. And it became a saddened self portrait of a man who is simply running out of time. The last piece is a prayer, not hopeful, or religious, but to myself, that I must be satisfied." -- Loren Mazzacane Connors
