While My Guitar Gently Annihilates: Electric Improvisations
by Matthew Howard
While My Guitar Gently Annihilates is a seven-year sonic journal of one guitarist’s quest to play the ultimate mind-bending guitar solo. These improvisations ignore conventional song structures, instead employing drones, soundscapes, and layered guitars to propel the fiery fretwork to new heights of shred.
The tracks on While My Guitar Gently Annihilates come from live and studio sessions. In the live performances, the guitar gets run through a loop pedal to create layer upon layer of rhythms, melodies, and ambient sounds. While My Guitar Gently Annihilates would be well-suited for fans of heavy, progressive rock and ambient post-rock.
Due to the live nature of many of these recordings, sound quality may vary from track to track.
