Hidden Logic was created through a sense of joy and play. Guitarists Andrew Frost and William Beauvais used their many decades of combined experience as a springboard for new invention. At times they continued each other’s thoughts so well they couldn’t remember who played what. Roles shift continuously as the performers surprise each other with fresh accompanying figures and contrapuntal lines. As the musical conversation grows, sometimes there even seems to be a third party playing along and guiding them.
Quiet playing rewards us with lovely lyricism, drawing the listener in. At other times, as the
resonances stack up, the two instruments merge into a single larger one. Rhythms slap back
and forth and noise is welcomed into the texture, offset by surprising melodies. The mirroring of sounds highlights the conversational nature of the music which brings forth yet another shift in roles. Hidden Logic is a chance to hear two creative spirits and the peak of their power.
