about

Text by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma

The Garden Of Forking Paths is the first full length solo CD by San Francisco based musician Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. Eschewing the laptop processing of his earlier work as Colophon, the album was created with an assortment of tape recording mediums (Cassette, Micro-Cassette, Reel to Reel tape machine) and a small arsenal of guitar stop boxes used on wide variety of instruments from electric guitar to bowed gong. In addition to recording at his home studio, various sites found in the near by Marin Headlands just north of San Francisco were used for live outdoor site specific recording.

With its title taken from a short story by Jorge Luis Borges, the album is overtly concerned with dreams, memory, death, birth, infinity and the possibility of a labyrinth like approach to music making, where songs are not written as much as they slowly emerge out of the process of music making.
