Local avant guitarist Christopher Belt gets a chance to demonstrate his range at Blue Bamboo

Second only to electro-druid Bruce Haack instructing Mr. Rogers and his audience of youngsters on the ins and outs of synthesizers back in 1968, leftfield guitarist Chris Belt took the silver medal in the avant/public-airwaves stakes by being tapped to provide musical ambience for a live taping of NPR’s Science Friday wonkfest at the Bob Carr on March 28. And going from strength to strength – and that’s not even counting his recent stellar turn as part of Karl Berger’s Improvisers Orchestra – Belt will now be holding court at Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts in a solo recital setting. On tap for Belt tonight will be an ambitious program of classical guitar renditions of “12 Études” by Heitor Villa-Lobos, “Tellur” by Tristan Murail and, intriguingly, “Electric Counterpoint” by Steve Reich. The young composer and guitarist is a master of his craft, sure, but refreshingly he’s not afraid to throw a whole box of spanners in the musical works without warning.
