The Prepared Sardinian Guitar

From this ‘fighting meeting’ between extra-cultivated avant-garde and popular tradition, between 1993 and 1996, came Paolo Angeli's Sardinian prepared-guitar: an orchestra-instrument with 18 cords, an hybrid between guitar, baritone, violoncello and drums, gifted with hammers, pedals, some propellers at variable speed. With this singular instrument, Paolo elaborates, improvises and composes unclassifiable music, suspended between free jazz, folk noise and minimal pop.
