About the Berlin Guitar X-tet
The Berlin Guitar X-tet is a group of guitarists from Europe, North and South America formed in Berlin in 2017. Their repertoire is diverse including original compositions, rock, film music and contemporary pieces. A central element of their work is improvised or composed “Circulations,” whereby a note or chord is passed from one player to another. All guitarists in the X-tet use the “Guitar Craft Tuning” that gives the guitar an extended sonic range and unique tonality.
