'Reflections on an Introspective Path' is Frantz Loriot's first solo album. Exploring the instrument in an exclusively acoustic setting he creates stunning microcosms of electronic-like sounds and textures through the use of preparations and extended techniques that he has developed over the past fifteen years. This meticulous research was initially prompted by his interest in electroacoustic and acousmatic music and in time it developed into a profound and personal musical journey. The title of the album also finds meaning in Morgan O'Hara's drawing for the cover. The drawing is in fact a portrayal of Frantz's movements while performing in her studio. Her work obliquely reflects the movement, timing, shapes and form of Frantz's music.
