Covid-19 is dangerously impacting the social-economic category of musicians. No concerts, poor political and social consideration, uncertain earnings. As a consequence, an ever-growing number of musicians, especially those from the experimental area, are trying to promote their music on BandCamp in digital format only. It is increasingly difficult for me to follow and review this incredible flow of music. I therefore decided to open this section on my blog Neuguitars where I propose music in digital format that I consider particularly interesting and worthy of attention. I hope you like it. Let’s support musicians. They need it.
Fur/Torn by David Torn, BandCamp, 2020 on #neuguitars #blog
I’ve performed these pieces with an electric guitar, amp & pedals/electronics, at my home studio.
i tend to record pretty often; sometimes i’m looking for new sonorities/noise, sometimes digging into textural motion & (errrm) “events/gestures”, sometimes i think i’m writing, sometimes i’m just practising my instruments.
if i begin recording, it’s almost always because i feel a need to simply play with no boundaries (other than the ones clicking in that moment): to simply play.
as thisall’s been going on for a long time, i’ve amassed a hefty bunch of solo bits & pieces; i’ve chosen these 8 to begin releasing a wild herd of ’em.
these were recorded live, without overdubs.
thanks much for stopping by!, i hope you enjoy this, and peace to you.
