about

Tracks 1, 2, 3, and 5 are multi-tracked guitar pieces using a mechanical sustaining device that can infinitely hold out any notes on the guitar, even more than one at a time (unlike an eBow). It works by exciting the strings of the guitar using a motor to control six wheels, which are controlled by levers on the bridge. These tracks were composed in 2016. Track 4 is a piece from 2007 involving Alvin Lucier's "I Am Sitting In A Room" technique of sending a sound into a room over and over again. Track 6 is an electronic drone piece composed in 2015.
