The Slow Dance of Time (2011)

Tom Caufield
Contemporary Instrumental

Tom Caufield’s debut album, “The Slow Dance of Time” offers nine emotional, meditative instrumental compositions performed on Spanish Guitar. Sharing elements with the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, the music is sparse, simple, humble in execution, and expresses a sense of aching beauty. It acknowledges the suffering of life yet conveys the open-ended nature of creation and experience. With compositions as interesting as they are subtle, “The Slow Dance of Time” is a guitar music collection of uncommon beauty.
