Refolia is an idea by guitar player Anders Borbyes to collect works based on the baroque theme “La Folia”. When he plays in concert, he draws upon the rich catalogue of works already existing, but on this CD there are only new and recent pieces, 3 of them in fact written especially for this CD.


The thought is, of course, that given a certain musical theme as inspiration, the CD will on the same time present an artistic unity, as well as diversity, because of the composers’ different approach. All for the pleasure of the listener.  


My contribution is written for electric guitar, using certain elctro-acoustic effects, like delay, octaver and different degrees of distortion. A Devil Behind the Mask is the title, which refers to the fact that my piece is made up of different dramatic characters, or masks, all built upon the theme, referred to as the devil.
