I’ve got a new CD due out by the end of the month. I’m releasing it in stages. It is currently available through Bandcamp. In two weeks it will be available on iTunes and Amazon. The physical CD will be available by the end of the month. This CD contains an eclectic mix of originals and arrangements for classical and electric guitars, a solo piano piece, and an electronic piece that may freak out your neighbors (Red Desert).
Prayer, Sun Kiss, Sunshine, Improv #5, and Northern Lights feature the guitar paired with the computer program, Max/MSP. Through the use of this program, the solo guitar is made to sound like many guitars. None of the sounds on these tracks were pre-recorded. All sounds were processed in real time.
The classical guitar originals (Renaissance Dance, Greenwood, Two Childhood Sketches, and Evensong) were composed over a 16-year period, with Renaissance Dance being the earliest and Evensong being the most recent piece.
The two arrangements, Scarborough Fair and House of the Rising Sun, fill out the rest of the CD. Scarborough Fair remains gentle in this arrangement, while House of the Rising Sun becomes increasingly more and more frantic before reaching the climax in the final verse.
