Burnside Album Details

Anger, Darol & Mike Marshall, woodshop

Much of this recording was conceived as a twenty-year update and progression from the duo’s masterpiece Chiaroscuro, released on Windham Hill Records in 1985, which sold over 65,000 copies. As Darol and Mike have both learned so much about life and music since then, they hoped to extrapolate on what would become a lot of folks’ favorite instrumental recording. The wish to make a musical “message from the future” that would reflect their present emotional, intellectual and spiritual selves. They tried to not get too hung up on perfection but to communicate a vibe; to showcase the glorious sounds of their string instruments playing music in a space “big enough to do it in”.
