Brady, Tim
24 Frames - Trance [CD & DVD]

Brady, Tim: 24 Frames - Trance [CD & DVD] (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    


"[Translation] 24 Frames is a series of 24 pieces for guitar written over the past few years. 24 Frames: Trance is the first installment in a triptych documenting the whole cycle. This first release is actually part three, featuring the compositions Frame 19 up to Frame 24, all for electric guitar, electronics, and video (by Martin Messier) - hence the CD+DVD format. Messier's videos are interesting abstract works, though not essential to the music (except perhaps for Frame 24: 57 Ways of Playing Guitar). Brady delivers virtuoso performances and deploys treasures of original techniques. This record puts him (once again) on par with Fred Frith and Nick Didkovsky. 24 Frames: 57 Ways of Playing Guitar in particular makes him worthy of the title of guitar hero. A splendid record that goes straight to the essence of Brady's aesthetics. I'm eagerly awaiting the other two installments."-François Couture in Monsieur Délire (Québec)

"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.
