* MUSIC FOR GUITAR *

I've been playing guitar since the age of 14. As a teenager in Mississippi, I grew up playing rock/pop, blues, jazz, and free improvisation. There I studied for several years with Mississippi master fiddler and guitarist, Tim Avalon. After a long break from the guitar, I returned to the instrument in 2004 with an instinctually new approach. Since then, I have focused on playing in various open tunings and with a motoric two-finger (👌) plucking style, often with a third finger (🖕) percussing the wood of the guitar (Twilights, 2018). More recently I have been applying my dreamwork practice to the guitar, both overdubbed electric (The Seraphic Mirror, 2020) and solo acoustic (The Living Mirror, 2021).

With THE SERAPHIC MIRROR (2020) Marble explores the electric guitar as if in a dream. Literally, for the music was made through his ongoing meditative dreamwork, which has become a daily practice in his quarantine life in Greensboro, NC. Unhurried, each track on the album dwells in spacious atmospheres and inspired voicings--from the litanic folk bliss of "Strigian Enchantment" to the jazz-inflected mystery of "Ophidian Pearl." In addition, Marble's dreamwork and symbolic language are made visible in the accompanying visual art, which he designed for each of the seven tracks.
