Lapse is the latest album from Canadian guitarist Curran Faris. Where his previous releases and live performances utilize the electric guitar and an array of effect chains and signal paths, Lapse was created using only an acoustic guitar and a minimal gear setup. Combining unprocessed room mics and the acoustic’s pick-up, Faris strips the instrument down to its essential tonal quality while pushing far away from easily identifiable guitar sounds. This minimal concept mirrors the sounds within: sustained tones, almost synth-like in nature, gradually unfurl and shift amidst distant, glacial melodies. As otherworldly as the guitar sounds on Lapse, there are moments when the listener is reminded that they are in fact hearing a person playing the acoustic guitar — rattling strings, the soft squeak of fingertips gliding across the fret board. This marriage of the unidentifiable and the familiar, the acoustic and electric, yields an album that is deceptively multilayered and much more than the sum of its slow-moving parts.

Curran Faris: acoustic guitar

Recorded in 2016 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

“Lapse is just under a half hour of organic energy balanced drone. The sounds change in minute amounts creating the sustained soundtrack for space time events. This harmony finds open pathways into the depths of our consciousness, the minds infinite space. Tones on the precipice of the infinite expanse in both internal and external directions. Greenhouse has the wisdom, patience and creativity to bring forth the exact amount. The drone dosage of all the time listening contently, never being dozed or dowsed away. Curran Faris is the creative force behind Greenhouse. For Lapse, Curran used acoustic guitar and a small amount of processors. Amazingly acoustic guitar would be a distant guess of how these sounds are created. Resting in some point in time, an almost undetectable sparkle of the surrounding grandeur, Lapse is brilliant.” — Lost in a Sea of Sound (5/31/17)
