Spool’s Out Radio #101: Gosheven

Gosheven is the nom de plume of Bálint Szabó, also half of Budapest duo 12z. Out soon via Opal Tapes, his debut solo release Leaper sees Szabó utilising just intonation, Pythagorean tuning, Koto tuning, Meantone temperament – “and other non-typical tuning systems” – on his guitar and keys to craft music outside the realms of standardised Western practices. Aptly, he’s assembled a mix for us guiding us through some music made with non-standard tuning, including the likes of Lou Harrison, Ellen Arkbro, and Terry Riley.
