This album shows a different way of working. Usually I layer sound on sound. I am as much a producer and editor as I am a player - indeed, the latter is the lesser. Here though, I just took a Yamaha elecric guitar and played it through a Korg synth. I played for around an hour, and then listened back to the recording. I could hear the necessary episodes in it, and new there were a series of pieces in there which needed to be hewn from the marble. So I became editor again, but tried to avoid layering. I added a drum machine beat on track, a bass on another, and some faux acoustic on another. Other than that, they are electric guitar solos.
