about

Gosheven is the solo project of Budapest’s Balint Szabo, a musician who has developed his guitars voice against it’s typical confinement. Where the fundamentally out-of-tune Western tuning has withheld some musicians in its history, Gosheven has researched and concerned himself with just intonation and other non-typical tuning systems for this debut release on Opal Tapes. Balancing blunted poetics and an intimate self-analysis of his place in sexual society, guitar, voice and elegant processing tell a story of metamorphosis and realisation of what is important in our short lives.

Featured tunings: just intonations by Wendy Carlos (#2, #10) and Ben Johnston (#11); La Monte Young's The Well-Tuned Piano tuning (#1, #4); Japanese koto tuning (#7); Banda Linda horns tuning (#9); Pythagorean tuning (#6), Meantone temperament (#12), Just intonation (#3, #5, #8)

I should have become really something
Like a male predator
Full of lucrative lust and firm beliefs
Based on persistency and commitment.

But I have become just the opposite
Strengthening my weakness
Laughing and weeping day by day
To avoid interpreting the so-called facts.

For now I withdraw myself to my mother's womb
To suck my thumb with great care
Settling in the ever-beating
Unfathomable innocence.
