Zur Kasse


heiko plank - germany, guitarist, composer, performer, inventor and builder of a new electroacoustical stringed instrument - the plank.

heiko plank is considered to be one of the most extraordinary guitarists of our time.

drifting waves is a solo performance moving through the keys of music and emotion. after a free introduction the soloist arrives at a certain sound, from which the music will develop to a minimalistic continuing progression. this infinitive modulation is steered by the voice leading. specific functions are assigned to the individual voices during the movement from chord to chord. the use of an echo effect transforms the sense of time. the repetition extends the duration of certain periods of time. in the presence we hear simultaneously what sounded in the past and which direction will be empathized in the future. the result is harmony of transitions.
