“G Plus means guitar with something else. This can be guitar with other instruments, (e.g. the G Plus Ensemble) or guitar with electronics (e.g. the three movements of The Third Fire by John Metcalfe, composed specifically for G Plus). Both ideas are being explored in this project. The G Plus ensemble here consists of two guitars, strings and percussion. This line-up was discovered by chance and works extraordinarily well. I was first drawn to it following my collaborations with string quartets.” Tom Kerstens.
Tom Kerstens’ G Plus Ensemble have been busy in the studio recording a brand new album Ignite. Produced by John Metcalfe and John Taylor at Peter Gabriel’s ‘Real World Records’. G Plus Ensemble will be touring this album across the UK beginning with:
