"electric guitarist Tim Brady... (an) exuberant one-man ensemble..."-The New York Times
24 Frames-Trance is composer and guitarist Tim Brady's 16th CD, and the second to include a companion DVD, a document of his continuing multi-media collaboration with video artist Martin Messier.
24 Frames-Trance is a music of hypnotic states, of altered guitars, of 6-string alchemy, of virtuoso performances and compositional subtleties.
24 Frames-Trance is the first release of a planned series of 3 CD+DVD releases, creating a large-scale work for solo guitar and other media, with almost 3 hours of new music by one of the most influential composer/guitarists working today.
Trance-driving rhythms and a stunning solo melodic improvisation, over an orchestra of up to 35 electric guitars
Sul A-an intense and mysterious soundscape, focussing on the sound of a single string (A string) to build its dramatic structure
Switch-5 short movments, each exploring a different approach to solo guitar and electronics
O is for Ostinato-relentless arpeggios combined with simple electronics create an Escher-like swirl of harmony, pulse and timbre.
Invisible Quartet-music in slow motion, music of the spheres, based on a radical re-working of a single sample of a glissando by a string quartet in dialogue with heavily processed electric guitar textures.
57 Ways of Playing Guitar-the largest work on the CD, in 4 sections, moving from simple solo guitar triads to complex electroacoustic invention to jazz/rock inspired melodic mayhem.
