As a lapsed classical guitarist I have found it difficult to write music for my instrument. In order to distance myself from it I worked with an old steel guitar with rusty strings, which I detuned and improvised on. It searches for an an optimal place between acoustic (in this case Guitar) and electronic sound (modular synth), where neither is obviously at the forefront. Dr. Blagovo is a minor character from a Chekhov novella titled My Life (1896) whose name appealed to me.
