I had an idea last night to make an entire song with only electric guitar. Trying to mimic the different parts of songs that are (traditionally) not string instruments. So, after about 60 guitar parts layered, using varying techniques, you end up with something like today’s song. Clanging and booming, in an inevitable gallop towards doom. It reminded me of a horse galloping. That of course (of course) reminded me of the imagery of the Apocalypse. So, I decided to make a companion piece of art with this one. I think I may like the picture more than the song… but the song is pretty interesting.
