Sprenger’s guitar outputs each string separately in a surround sound. The guitar is precisely tuned in Fullman’s just intonation system. Sympathetic resonances from the guitar reinforce the upper partials of the long string instrument. This duo conjures a mesmerizing folk music band. Immersed in the diffusion of the room phantom instruments arise: banjo… harmonica… horns… cello… fancy guitar picking… organ…

The project has been performed at AngelicA, 2016 and Techtonics, Athens, 2017. Upcoming performances include Hallo Festspiele, Hamburg and Elisabeth Kirche, Berlin.
