THE EDGE OF VISIBILITY
The first solo guitar recording by Cameron Mizell.
Combining improvisational jazz with traces of progressive rock and avant-garde experimentalism, Mizell explores the sounds of the dreaming and waking world. This is a thought-provoking work, one that lingers in the memory long after it has ceased spinning.
The album epitomizes a vast and inventive sonic encounter, an unconventional plunge into subliminal escape and mood-altering cognizance. Mizell superbly presents high technical proficiency, artistry, and melodic skills in this praiseworthy and tastefully hypnotic collection.
Recorded July 6, 2015 by Ted Tuthill at Sear Sound, NYC, with Grant Valentine, assistant engineer. Mixed and mastered by George Shalda at Beardog Studios, Austin, TX. Design: Kadie Foppiano. Executive Producer: Mike Shields.
