Description
I originally set off recording the album as solo electronic record. It was to be a testimony album; portraying the current season my wife and I are in – both of us out of college, trying to get both our careers started, move into a new home and stand on our own two feet so-to-say, all while deepening our relationship with each other and our heavenly Father as we look Him to move mountains. With problems in the recording & performance process – dealing with equipment and software that was both too unpredictable and unreliable – I set off to re-work the album for solo electric guitar & loop machine. I dug into the capabilities & idiosyncrasies of using delay and loop machines dynamically with distortion in a minimalist manner making the most of musical motifs, layering, and compositional shape. Using only notes on staff paper and rough-sketch recordings, I composed and recorded the album over the course of Spring & Summer 2012, both loving the project, and hating the whole process at the same time. The result is a very real & organic soul-bearing solo guitar album. No multitracking; only piecing different sections of composition together at it’s most technical aspects; if not recording the whole song in a single take.
