Presentation

« Rising From The Ashes » is the Club release for January 2020.

The piece is a restless instrumental that evolved from an unusual chord progression which I stumbled upon while noodling on the nylon guitar back in the Spring of 2019.

It evokes the indomitable loving energy that animates all that is alive, and which seemingly never stops surging and thriving onward even when the unthinkable happens and demise appears unavoidable.

The artwork featured in the video was inspired by photographs of signs of life returning after the Australian bushfires.

Personal Impressions :

« I've been blessed to receive such an inspiration... I've listened to the original demo on an almost daily basis for months thinking that this could be a gem... and I wasn't sure I could get it right... but I'm really satisfied with the results… »

No picks were used during the making of this recording, which is a first for me for this type of composition. After a lifetime believing that it was necessary to use a pick to achieve a certain level of virtuosity on the electric guitar, I had an epiphany over the holidays. While discovering the works of a young Italian guitarist via YouTube, it became obvious that this limitation was only conceptual and didn’t actually exist.
