– General Description: This album is a delight and very relaxing. Harpist, composer, and improviser Stephan Haluska is excellent examining the harp’s unique textural, harmonic, and percussive qualities. Based in Cleveland, OH, much of his music focuses on blending traditional and non-traditional harp playing through extended techniques, preparation, tools, electronics, and effects pedals. In addition to his solo music, Haluska collaborates with numerous jazz, free improvisation, and experimental musicians.
