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.
Hello, it’s me by by Ela Iràton, Bandcamp, 2021 on #neuguitars #blog
“Hello, it’s me” is a collection of tunes for solo electric guitar, somehow it can be considered a sort of tribute to my beloved instrument.
This original music is contemplative and slow and what you hear is just me sitting on a chair playing my guitar (no cuts or overdubs…).
Once recorded the main parts I decided to add some nuances with synthesizers and pedals.
For those who are curious here’s the gear:
Moog Grandmother, Arturia Microbrute, Philips D6350,
Meris Mercury 7 – Strymon Timeline – Montreal Assembly Count to five – Electro Harmonix Super ego.
