Keith Rowe is a co-founder of the English improvising ensemble AMM, established in 1966. Already in the late 1950´s Rowe started experimenting with preparations on the guitar, influenced by the ideas of Marcel Duchamp. In the early 1960’s he was a member of Mike Westbrook’s band until his resolution never to tune his guitar again, made his resignation from the group unavoidable. Since then Rowe has exclusively played the “table top guitar”, as a soloist, in AMM and in various other groups.
