Rolf Hansen – Tableau (Karaoke Kalk, LP/digital)

The Danish musician Rolf Hansen was already on the road in the alternative folk scene, but has recently said goodbye to storytelling and turned to the sonic possibilities of his instrument. After finding an unconventional approach to the guitar on his debut record released under his real name, »Elektrisk Guitar«, he radicalises his approach once again on »Tableau«, using the guitar primarily as a sound generator and only secondarily as an instrument in the conventional sense.
