about

Christian Vasseur's work "Alam" was recorded 16 years ago. Eleven very clear and fresh compositions, only Christian's voice and a 14-string-archlute.

It is a very pure work. You can hear the deep and slightly dark tone of the archelute, Christian's fingers moving over the fretboard and his voice, sometimes humming in the background. I think the main difference with Christian's guitar work is that "Alam" is very structured. You still have the feeling that Christian's play is very light, free and close to improvising, but at the same time, one feels very save and guided in this compositions.

Not to forget the strong link to John Dowland and Elizabethan lute music with virtuosity transferred to the present days.
