Ido Bukelman plays music to the march of broken beats using dis-harmonised melodies and obscure structures. It’s a free style, sometimes abstractly shaped form of music.
In the album, the dominant sound is almost entirely Ido’s acoustic guitar, usually tuned down a couple of tones, yet also features some layers of feedback, swirled sounds and strange squeaks, made by Bukelman’s abuse of his somewhat tortured Martin.
Solo is Bukelman’s debut solo recording.
*** “Solo” is structured like many improvised avant-garde guitar records, with uses on silence, noise, jarring disjointed or disembodied chords, etc. but Ido Bukelman has a sense of melody and rhythm that, though deconstructed to great degree, is present and underpins this set with an unexpected and sublime grace (Foxy Digitalis)
