Gorgeous new full length from Dutch lutenist Jozef Van Wissem.
Wissem's long form, graceful melodic lute layers, preceded by
suspenseful deep bass movements, create a transcendental and pastoral. Wissem's is a world where hypnotic minimalist figures are repeated to slow the act of listening.
Nihil Obstat (Nothing Hinders) is performed on Wissem's custom black lute built by Michael Schreiner.
The CD version of Nihil Obstat inciludes an extended 11 minute version. LP pressed in an edition of 800.
"New classical lute music that sound as if it always
existed, as if it has been studied and practiced and performed for
ages." Foxy Digitalis
