The Quadrature by Daniel Wyckoff is an acoustic instrumental progressive haven. It’s not everyday that we cover instrumentals here on FrostClick, so here’s one to feast your ears on.
Daniel Wyckoff is a guitar¬†aficionado¬†that has just released his second record of nothing but sweet acoustic guitar goodness for free. His second album, A Shift, is available as a free download on Jamendo as well.
Before that though, he released The Quadrature which feature a lite-prog and math rock sound. The recording quality isn’t perfect but you just have to admire Wyckoff’s skill.
The Quadrature is a moody progressive acoustic instrumental album that you might enjoy if you love acoustic guitars. It features 10 tracks that are all done with just the guitars. So don’t expect any fancy mixes in this one, but rather a stripped down, solo performance of a man and his instrument.
Some songs worth checking out include opening track, Enlightenment; the moody piece, Roast Beef; and the mariachi/cowboy inspired track, The Grand Conspirator.
As mentioned, those who are not really into instrumentals, let alone an acoustic one, might have trouble appreciating this effort. However, if you love guitars and don’t mind just listening to a guy play and experiment with his choice of instrument, you’ll probably enjoy this one.
