Eter is comprised of improvisations with various starting points, all of which have emerged from a long-term investigation of the sounds that dwell in the acoustic steel string guitar, and of the music that dwell within the fingers, and within the heart. This collection of music turns into a journey between, on the one hand, textural improvisations in which the use of preparations and objects renders it difficult to identify the guitar as the source of the sound, and on the other, more melodic adventures in which the instrument is played in a more a traditional way.
"An acoustic guitar contains unexpected capacities for sonic expression. And Finn Loxbo is a master of discovering them, and of making great art out of these possibilities. While in his hands [...] the metal and wood of the acoustic guitar is singing completely new songs."
– Johan Jacobsson Franzén, Orkesterjournalen
