QiSonix: Solo Banjitar Improv #1

This is a very modern-style improvisation reminiscent of music by Steven Reich. Some of this reminds me of Balinese gamelan music. I like this because too many people think we are just trying to copy five-string bluegrass banjo without taking time to learn a new instrument and tuning. This innovative improv shows a banjoist exploring some new sonic terrain. It inspired me to do some improvisations and to record them as well.
