O’s Notes: Pendulum features guitarist, composer, producer Gordon Grdina in a solo effort. He compliments his classical, acoustic guitar with two excursions on the oud notably “The Chase” with an improvised, exotic feel. Grdina’s techniques spill over from one instrument to the other making for unique and appreciable sounds. We appreciated the lack of electronic overdubs and enhancements in favor of pure instrumental tones.
