Daniel Wyche – Earthwork

Only 1 left in stock


““A lot of this record is about memory and long stretches of time – not just making, but remaking, constantly tinkering.” That’s Daniel Wyche – a Chicago-based guitarist, composer, improviser, and professor – whose new LP Earthwork has been a long time in the making, depending on the jump-off point. The LP synthesizes guitar music and instrumental soundscapes, resulting in a nuanced, cohesive collection inspired by family, loss, and legacy that falls in between Japanese environmental music, free jazz, and modern classical.

Wyche is as community-oriented as they come, being part of organizations such as Chicago’s Elastic Arts and co-founding COVID relief initiatives like Experimental Sound Studio’s The Quarantine Concerts, but that ethos carries into his music, too. Opening track “”This Was Home”” is a seventeen-minute testament to the meaning of place and the beauty of collaboration.
