A word from the artist:
Sonata De GrilloÂ is Spanish for â€˜song of the cricketâ€˜, or â€˜music of the cricketâ€˜. While I was working on this album every evening a cricket would start their song just as the sun was setting.
A lot of times while recording my guitar I could hear him chirp, I eventually stuck my mic through the window and decided to give him a proper recording. He was fully featured on the title track â€œSonata De Grilloâ€œ.
The entire album is made up of tracks ranging over three years. I recorded my guitar in tunnels and storm drains, sampled movies, music boxes and vinyl records. I also had the pleasure to recordÂ Nicole CalhounÂ on cello.
This is my first solo release asÂ Richard HoughtenÂ on a full length vinyl record.
It was an amazing process cutting the lacquers, getting the plates made and getting to drive directly to the pressing plant.
