Kevin Hufnagel has been playing the guitar for 20 years and is perhaps best known for his work in progressive instrumental rock band Dysrhythmia (Relapse Records) and guitar-as-wall-of-sound duo Byla. Kevin''s first full-length solo recording ''Songs for the Disappeared'', released on his own Nightfloat Recordings imprint, is an album which seeks to unify eclectic and exploratory uses of the acoustic guitar into a cohesive and gripping whole. Tracks like the exotic "Hunter/Hunted" and "Insects Will Tell" build layer upon layer of rhythmically propulsive sound through the use of "prepared guitar" [the act of altering the instruments timbre by placing various objects on or between the strings]. In contrast are pieces like the haunting "The Bridge" and "Twilight Clocks"; solo guitar works at their most naked and stark. Bridging the gap between the two are atmospheric interludes such as "Night In Reverse" and "Will They Find Me" which make use of various Echoplex looping techniques and electronic processing of acoustic guitar to an almost choral effect.
