Album launch – Sporadic Outbursts

Originally released on this site under the Sporadic Outbursts heading, these are explorations that led to the creation of “Music Chamber” and “Live in […]

Some new music

I’ve just finished a three part guitar piece called, “And Angels Sing Thee To Thy Rest,” and here are the rough mixes of them. They are very simple pieces each in an open tuning, and all of them played into a massive reverb. Part 3 was written for David Gamper and performed at his memorial […]

March Loop

I only took four years, but here’s a new one: March Loop by Cinema Volta


Another new track and this time you didn’t have to wait six months for it. This track was made very simply with just my Les Paul, my eBow and a really long, dense reverb courtesy of RaySpace. There were no looping or harmonic effects used at all, which is unusual for me. Infinite guitar 1 […]

Here’s another Guitar Meditation. Guitar Mediation Three, March 26, 2006.

Guitar Meditation One

Here’s the first of the tracks. Guitar Mediation One, March 30, 2006.

Guitar Meditation Two

And another one. By now, you can see the biggest difference between this project and Daily Ambience is that the tracks are not necessarily posted in chronological order. These guitar meditations make heavy use of filtered delays and slowly decaying loops. I’m working on ways of making the setup I use responsive to playing. I’ve […]
