Guitarists Joe Battaglia and Terrence McManus have been performing and recording improvised music together since 1999, and it has blossomed into a deep musical connection. Their debut recording, Pastellic Reflections, was released in March 2006 on the Flattened Planet record label. The work displays the highly intuitive nature that they have developed and showcases their concept of improvised music. Joe and Terrence employ a very personal sense of musical architecture throughout each piece. The themes are all connected to one another, and you can hear the improvisations develop a composed sense of form.
