If you're unfamiliar with Christopher Whitley's work then his main focus is extracting new potential from the solo violin. There aren't that many musicians out there combining the sounds of an actual 1700s Stradivarius with improvised loops of reverb-heavy electronics and glitchy, decaying static sounds. But then there aren't that many musicians out there with the sheer virtuosity to be allowed anywhere near a Stradivarius, such as the one loaned to Whitley by the Canada Council for the Arts. He's that good, and 'Solos' presents nine of his violin pieces in a beautiful, highly-limited CD-only package. We're talking stitched glassine bags, cloth-bound maps, film negatives, patchouli scented inserts...the works.
