#3522: Works for Multiple Electric Guitars

Email a Friend

Hear music for multiple electric guitars, including acoustic guitar played by Dominic Frasca – single string processed through a laptop to sound like different instruments – namely three or so electric guitars. Listen to guitarist Dustin Wong and his very staccato overlapping parts, drawn from singing in rounds in primary school in Japan, and what might be the musical ancestor of such ideas - Pat Metheny playing Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint. Then, there’s the interlocking sounds of very rhythmic guitar parts by England’s Jeremy Peyton-Jones in a work written for Canadian guitarist Tim Brady, who plays all 18 parts. Plus, hear music by Zwerm, a quartet of electric guitarists, and more.
