Jon Durant’s “Alternate Landscapes” represents a remarkably unique approach to the guitar. Throughout the four extended compositions, the only instrument used is a guitar, though at no time is it obvious that a guitar is being played. The material includes some overt references to some of the music that inspired Durant as a teenager in the 1970s, including Tangerine Dream and Fripp & Eno. Durant’s vision on “Alternate Landscapes” was one of extensive sonic vistas, taking time to unfold but deeply engaging throughout. At times lush and beautiful and other times dark and disturbing, the landscapes evolve slowly and evocatively.
