As Is – Guitar Mural #14 by Remko Scha And The Machines, Staalplaat, 2021 on #neuguitars #blog

Dear friends

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.

‘As Is’ is performed by six electric sabre saws (The Machines) on Guitar Mural #14, a spatial construction with nine electric guitars and three electric bass guitars. Guitar Mural #14 was commissioned for the exhibition ‘Anti Aqua Musica; the ‘open’ musical instrument in art and anti-art’ at the Haags Gemeentemuseum, August-October 1989, which was curated by composer Dick Raaijmakers.
