7-5-7

Roofhare is an experimentalist I've been following for some time now. A guitarist and electronic explorer, his works are filled with unexpected combinations, and unusual approach.  Lots of found-sound and musique concrete elements populate his works.

I sense the influence of progressive rock lurking in the back of his work, experimental and delving into the unknown. He's an incredibly competent musician.

7-5-7 is a good representation of his work. Very eclectic, each piece takes a different approach, partially due to the pieces having originally being made for music challenges. They are all well mixed, with a clarity that belies their found-sound aspects, as the field recordings used are recorded in proper detail. Whimsicality and playful compositions abound.

You can find Roofhare on Twitter as @Groovehare, or on Soundcloud.
