    I'm really, really psyched about this one.

    Arc started with improvisation at it’s core. The original sessions were with drummers Jim Keltner and James McAlister. I played guitar and baritone guitar, live processing and looping. This raw material was the basis for the 8 pieces that make up the record.



    Musically and texturally I got to some new levels in my playing and producing, putting into practice some techniques and concepts I’ve been stewing on for a few years. I’ve been developing an approach to generating rich ambient textures and sounds from my guitar while I’m improvising. More than just adding more effects to the guitar, it’s about making more music happen on the fly. I used these techniques throughout the album.



    The record also features the talents of Jon Evans on bass, Steve Moore on keys and trombone, and Michael Iveson on drums. Roger Joseph Manning Jr. wrote the wonderfully textural arrangements for a string octet.

    The release date is May 17, but you can pre-order right now and get a track immediately.
