Steve Gibbs is a specialist of the 8 string classical guitar, a wonderfully deep-sounding instrument with its own tragic voice. His work spans recitals, research and multidisciplinary creation. Collaborating with master luthiers, he has developed a radically personalized 8 string concert guitar with embedded captors that enables him to approach Bach lute music, contact noise and odd string fractions within a single instrument. 40 years of performing have taken him to Asia, Europe and the USA. His professional training includes Western music, Carnatic and Buddhist chant and Korean shamanist percussion.
