Benoît Pioulard - Sonnets, red flower held up against trees and blue sky

Benoît Pioulard’s new album “Sonnet” was inspired by a series of field recordings of tones and unintentional harmonies that the artist made in the summer & fall of 2013 — whistling industrial air conditioners, bird songs, locust drones, washing machines — that were then mimicked or interpreted on the guitar.

The album’s release date is 30 March.
