Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Recording information: 2006-2007.
Muze PNote More than a mere label sampler of artists signed to the Important Records roster, THE GARDEN OF FORKING PATHS is a well-thought-out collection of solo performances that function as a complete whole. The artists include koto player Chieko Mori, cellist Helena Espvall, lute player Jozef van Wissem, and the album's producer and compiler, guitarist James Blackshaw. Although each performer plays a different type of stringed instrument in a different musical tradition, the subtle similarities of approach and tone bring the album together into a coherent single unit.

Producer: James Blackshaw (Compilation)

Pitchfork (Website)
- "[The] musicians each bring a highly individualized approach to their instruments....Despite the musicians' diverse musical and cultural backgrounds, however, the collection is able to accent the many subtle echoes between each of these pieces..."
