The music on "Nothing Is Always" is a stark take on Melodic Minimalism. The sound is deep and dark, but also pretty and haunting. Dennis Kane (aka, "The Hunted Hare") treats the guitar more like a cello or voice at times, often playing monophonic melodies as a way to intensify the starkness of the music. The accompaniment equally is bare, to pull the listener's focus to the guitar. It's not a bleak recording, it's full of bittersweet memories and haunting beauty, as well. Dennis Kane is a composer and multi-instrumentalist from Washington, DC. His work is informed equally by Early Music, Classical, Experimental Electronic & Minimalism. In addition to Dennis’ solo works, he is half of the experimental, electro-acoustic duo, “Domingues and Kane”, with DC-area cellist and viola da gambist, Amy Domingues.
