Guitar Study No. 3 Frank Koustrup

Guitar Studies are a series of études for prepared, classical guitar and electroacoustic manipulations. The preparation of the guitar included varied, flat objects inserted between the strings in the style of John Cage’s prepared pianos. The guitar was struck, plucked, and rubbed. The electroacoustic treatments included layering, looping, reverberation, echo, time expansion, equalization, and editing.
