Village Voice\ "…musician, critics and listeners see Haverstick as either a masterful contributor of new music or an abrasive and irritating noise that won't go away." Westword\ \"Formidable fretboard chops and an affinity for the blues.\" - International Musician\ "Bold and daring, Haverstick ventures into distant aural galaxies" Guitar Player\ Tuning theory is vast and ancient, and its study and application has opened many areas of exploration for creative musicians. Haverstick has found a new freedom as a player and composer, because he has access to more subtle intervals and the new scales and chords which come from them. Neil is also being recognized for his Oud (i.e. Lute) playing, not to mention Flamenco and Banjo.\ In his own words: "(Also) playing Fretless Guitar presents many challenges, but allows me to find new horizons as a composer, including many subtle microtonal shades of colour, unavailable on a tempered instrument. The harmonic series is not an invention of humans, its part of the universal structure".\ https://youtu.be/IIPsHq2nI0o. \ https://umbrellapine.bandcamp.com/album/seven\ Magdalena Abrego is also the founder of Input/Output, a magazine that strives to showcase female and non-binary artists.\ \ Bios: NEIL HAVERSTICK\ Neil Haverstick was born on September 22, 1951, in S
