Zoltan’s pointillist compositions combine single notes of varying lengths to form ever-changing patterns. A composition technique he’s been exploring since 2018, Pointillism borrows its name from the post-impressionist painting technique which uses individually coloured dots to form an image. Zoltan’s works are performed on a modified guitar, on which he captures fragments of notes, creating ever-shifting tonal permutations.
‘Daylight in an Empty Room’ is an album of solo guitar improvisations, in which Zoltan has aimed to create a more open, spacious sound than in previous records. Zoltan works closely with his partner and painter Claire Lefebvre, who created the artwork for this album. ‘Daylight in an Empty Room’ suggests finding new detail in simplicity.
