nab·u·li

for 1 to 10(0) guitars

This is a demo recording of nab·u·li, which can be performed by a single person with a looping machine, recorded to multiple tracks (as is the case here) or performed by multiple live performers. It is constructed of 15 different musical figures in which the performer(s) select what to perform in a quasi “choose your own adventure” style. It is written in a flexible manner that more reflects the player than the composer by the choices that are made. The demo only utilizes only 4 or 5 of the figures, and all are not required in performance.

This work is also transcribed for Piano and Harp.
