Personnel: Steve Tibbetts (synthesizer, guitar, kalimba); Marc Anderson (drums, congas, percussion); Bob Hughes (bass); Tim Weinhold (bongos, vase, bells); Steve Cochrane, Marcus Wise (tabla). Recorded in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Tibbetts makes metallic folk music for disenfranchised folks. He's an elegant and multifaceted player, his compositions making use of exotic jungle rhythms (courtesy of longtime foil Marc Anderson), jazz-rock signatures, and regal European atmospheres. Tibbetts is one of the more idiosyncratic guitarists of the jazz/rock interface, with an uncanny ability to softly fondle his instrument yet rearrange its vocabulary to resemble nothing less than a sitar or tabla. The opening "Ur" begins with a pigeon's rush of flailing acoustic guitar before electric strings start to sizzle through the air like errant lightning. The incorporation of tablas, vases, bells, and sundry percussive devices gives the recording a noticeably Middle Eastern flavor. YR is much like rich Gypsy music as played by accomplished technology-savvy types intent on extolling the true virtues of their music. Tibbets and Anderson make beautiful, cascading music for those times when trad jazz just doesn't cut it, the mind has had it with new age, and the heart needs just the right hunk of rock

Steve comes from St.Paul, Minnesota, where in another reality he is a DJ at one of the local radio stations there. To say that he is a guitarist is truly an oversimplification of his unique style of combining all the possibilities of the studio with any and all instruments he happens to have handy. He is also a master of the mandolin, kalimba, and synthesizer also, although his music rarely uses it. He combines his guitarwork (both electric and acoustic) with an array of exotic worldwide percussion played by Marc Anderson, and tape loop studio effects created by both. The sound depends heavily on experimentation, both from the tape and from the music itself; Absence of sound plays an important part also, using silence and dynamics to tie things together. His first album was started as a project for an Electronic Music class in college. The five tracks on side one blend together to create a side-long experimental guitar opus. Side two kicks off with a heavy synth-track "Jungle Rhythm," then stretches out into some spacy guitar and electronics, and wraps up with "How Do You Like My Buddha?," an intense experiment in tape loops overlaid with heavy guitars and synth. The second album (Yr) is a must for guitar junkies: Each track overflows with multiple layers of acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, dobro, and exotic percussion; each flows nicely into the next, creating a sonic tapestry that is in constant evolution. Two tracks in particular, "Three Primates" and "You And It" are positively incredible! Northern Song is his first one for a major label (ECM), Recorded in Oslo, Norway, it relies almost exclusively on acoustic guitars and bongos/congas with studio acoustics and tape loops. The feeling is very sparse and spacy, very unlike the electrified Yr. Many of the overdubs sound as if they were added without listening to the tracks previously recorded, giving an out-of-sync effect, especially on the side long "Nine Doors/Breathing Space." With Safe Journey, Steve decided to turn the electricity back on, although many of the ideas from Northern Song are revisited here, further refined. This album has more variety than any of the others, from roaring adventures in guitar feedback ("Test") to the quietly dark and haunting "Night Again." Eastern ideas are explored in "Mission," using tabla, steel drums, tape loops and sitar. Another gem is "Any Minute," an experiment with multi-tracked kalimbas, guitars, percussion and tape loops that creates a mind shattering wall-of-sound effect. Exploded View is probably the most violent and edgy of all his recordings, dense and rough, almost frightening at times. This feeling carries throughout, from the snarling feedback of "Name Everything" to the other-worldly feeling of "Assembly Field." Vocals are used on several tracks (for the first time) for elevation and effect only (no lyrics). The variety of Safe Journey and the first two is not to be found here; the entire project has a unifying sound that is distinct from the others and unique unto its own. A challenging listening experience. Big Map Idea returns to a more acoustic sound, similar to the instrumentation of Northern Song, but more directed and defined. The compositions are more spastic and abrasive, jumping from one idea to the next without warning, erupting and dissolving. the only familiar tune here is a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Black Mountain Side"; all the other musical events on this album don't happen long enough to sink in and stay with you. Wouldn't reccomend it for starters.
Стив Тиббетс играет на акустической и электро- гитарах, а также на калимбе. Его творчество совмещает в себе несколько жанров и стилей, из которых наиболее значительными являются джаз, рок, фьюжн, нью-эйдж и этническая музыка. Обычно в каждой его композиции совмещается несколько из них.

Две первые записи были сделаны им в колледже. Вторая из них, «Yr», несмотря на то, что была издана самим Тиббетсом, получила определенные известность и признание, особенно среди поклонников музыки, исполняемой на электрогитаре. Запись содержала множество наложений (на одном из треков до 50), которые создавали уникальный музыкальный ландшафт. Подобно другим музыкантам, таким как, например, Брайан Ино, Тиббетс рассматривает студию звукозаписи как инструмент для создания звуков и часто подвергает свое звучание дополнительной обработке, добавляя внешние эффекты в готовые музыкальные композиции. В качестве примера может служить звук шагов в треке «Running» с пластинки «Safe Journey» или пение непальских крестьян на последних треках альбома «Big Map Idea».

Первая запись Тиббетса, которую он создал для большого лейбла, — это пластинка «Northern Song» (ECM, 1992). Это была попытка совместить музыку Тиббетса со стилем звукозаписи продюсера ECM Манфреда Айхера, отличавшегося чрезвычайной быстротой. Обычно альбомы ECM записываются в течение двух дней. Однако «Norhern Song» получила негативные рецензии. Возможно, именно в связи с этим Тиббетс вернулся к его прежнему методу очень медленной записи, длящейся в течение месяцев. Его следующие записи были встречены более благожелательно, и — что необычно для ECM — их не продюсировал Айхер.

Тиббетс выпустил пять альбомов в 1980-ых, три в 1990-ых, и еще два в последние 8 лет. Большинство своих записей он сделал совместно с перкуссионистом Марком Андерсоном (англ. Marc Anderson). Музыкант свободно использует петли в своей работе, причем подборку этих петель и некоторых других звуков можно купить на CD. Он фактически прекратил давать живые концерты в середине 1980-ых.

Alongside Stephan Micus, Steve Tibbetts occupies a
somewhat rare position in ECM's roster of longstanding
musical collaborators. Like the German
composer/multi-instrumentalist, this "Zen Guitarist"
defies ECM's general rule of two days to record, one day
to mix (with minimal editing and overdubbing); instead,
Tibbetts has, with rare exception, recorded his music
from a home base in St. Paul, Minneapolisagain like
Micus, sometimes taking years between recordings and with
minimal label intervention. Unlike Micus, however, who
produces his albums in isolation, Tibbetts regularly
collaborates with others, most notably percussionist Marc
Andersona constant companion since the guitarist's ECM
debut, Northern Song (1982).

Despite Tibbetts' recruitment of others engendering a
certain spontaneity absent in Micus' carefully
constructed work, his similarly multi-tracked music does
rely on texturally expansive but sonically detailed
soundscapes. Like 1994's career milestone, The Fall of Us
All (1994), A Man About a Horse (2002) was a deceptively
ambitious collection of largely calming but still
unequivocally deep performances, calling upon a larger
cast of characters. Natural Causes's return to the
relative simplicity of a duo with Andersonlast heard on
Northern Song (1982)still stands out amongst Tibbetts'
ECM discography for its all-acoustic nature.

Simpler in premise, perhaps, but comparisons with
Northern Song only demonstrate just how far Tibbetts has
come. His predilection, here, for 12-string acoustic
guitar might draw superficial comparison to label mate
Ralph Towner, but Tibbetts eschews the Oregon cofounder's
detailed, change-heavy compositional constructs; relying,
instead, on miniature orchestration built from relatively
diminutive instrumentation. Tibbetts layers over 20
guitar tracks on "Gulezian"co-written with guitarist
Michael Gulezian and the only piece not written solely by
Tibbettswithout ever feeling overcrowded. Its overt
folksiness reflects the perennially undervalued
Gulezian's biggest touchstoneacoustic guitar icons like
Leo Kottke and John Faheybut with Tibbetts at the helm
it retains, unsurprisingly, an episodic sense of
evolution, as miniature moments of serenity and
near-silence contrast with rhythmic passages driven only
occasionally by Anderson's economy of sound and pulse.

Tibbetts' piano and kalimba underpin tracks like the
hypnotically propulsive "Chandogra," while Anderson's
steel drum engenders additional timbral diversity on
"Lakshmivana." Still, it's Tibbetts' resonant
12-stringimbued in phrasing and serpentine linearity by
the guitarist's longstanding Far East interests in
general, and the work, here, of Sultan Khan in
particularthat's Natural Causes' defining voice.

All-acoustic it may be, but Tibbetts' still employs some
studio wizardry to create lush sonic backdrops, as he
does at the end of "Lakshmivanam." Billed as a duo
recording, Natural Causes' multifaceted nature,
continually revealing layers and trance-inducing
sonorities make clear that there's a silent third
partner: the studio itself. Natural Causes couldn't have
been created outside the confines of the recording studio
butin its organic holism and absolutely timeless
naturefeels as though it were made in some remote
outdoor locale. Natural Causes' vivid imagery makes it,
in fact, the ideal companion to Norwegian pianist Ketil
Bjrnstad's similarly cinematic but utterly different
Remembrance, also released in North American by ECM, on
the same day.
