Markus Reuter is the master of the ambient touch guitar. This instrument, in the hands of this virtuoso, produces a very distinct sound. When Markus adds manipulations and treatments, the sound goes over the top, into uncharted zones.
He recorded the tracks for The Longest in Terms of Being from July, 1999 through October, 1999 with one track from March, 2000. This set is a progression and a roller coaster of emotions. Markus has chosen to take listeners on a whirlwind tour of their own psyches. It promises to be an intense journey and to run the gamut of the dark side of the self. There are brief respites of contemplative melancholia but the overwhelming moods are dark, somber and ominous. At times, the disc even threatens to go sinister. This CD, released in 2001, is an excellent companion to Markus' collaborations, group projects and other solo efforts.

WOW! This is excellent stuff! Is it Jazz, is it Prog, is it something else? Just don't care, this is groovy and f***ing complex at the same time. Foot tapping and headbanging in weird signatures. Frank Hadlich

About 1/3 thru it so far, and already i agree that this is an important performance to release to the public. “Cusp” and “Larks 2” are worth the price of admission alone.
(Frustrated to learn of this October release in December, but i guess that just means i need to pay more attention to social media...?) cuzn ed
