Moshi Honen 'Set free' / Moshi Honen is a London based guitarist, improviser, composer and instrument builder. Playing an amplified acoustic guitar, self made electronic devices and objects. Regularly collaborates with Steve Beresford, Phil Minton, Alan Wilkinson, Sharon Gal and many others. On this recording I was playing an old nylon string guitar. It is one of a few pieces I've made for this type of guitar which I rarely play. There is a personal connection here to my Spanish ancestry but it is more imaginary then concrete / /
