ARTWORK BY: ED UNITSKY
From the man, who brought you the acclaimed 2012 Triology, ” THE TRIP AROUND THE SUN, ” which defined the TRUE ASTROLOGY OF THE AGES, comes a NEW RELEASE, that will PENETRATE INTO THE VORTEX, of the UNIVERSE.
” INFINITY, ” is the name, and for JAY TAUSIG, this was no game.
Here’s his explanation, about this project:
“ There are times I expect that I have indeed gone too far. This definitely is one of those times. “
“ Musically speaking that is. “
“ A new release I have been working on is one composition, running about 47 minutes. Working title “ INFINITY, “ or perhaps, ‘ Going Off The Deep End Into An Endless Self Indulgent Series Of Solo’s in Bizarre Modes While The Dog Spins in Endless Circles. ‘ “
“ But really, it’s some of my best guitar work to date? “
“ For no other reason perhaps as a result of the 150 or so live performance I’ve done over the last two or 3 years? “
“ Can’t hurt. “
“ And it’s ultimately the reason for which this release exists. “
“ And I think It needs to be said that it was HUGELY INSPIRED by BILL NELSON, whose solo work has been ILLUMINATING and listening to, much of it, I realized it was Perfectly Fine to use Drum Machines. So this is the first thing I’ve done in a LONG TIME, without playing drum kit at all. “
“ Making music that goes on and on like that, can sometimes be very difficult to keep interesting, while giving it a sense of going somewhere or evolving. “
“ WELL, THIS ONE CAME OUT WELL, I THINK?! “
“ In between working on a new Helios Creed album, a soundtrack, an EP, another vast project with Helios and Nik Turner I managed to pull this one out of thin air. “
“ It started with 47 minutes of “The Box” ( Which is modular little bits suitcase synth I built a little while back to experiment with ‘ Additive Synthesis. ‘ Oscillators literally crashing into each other to create very distinct possibilities. “
“ Then comes the Korg Analog Drum machine, which most definitely evolves Very Well over time, and it gives this recording just the rhythmic flair I was looking for, without using any ‘ Pre Sampled ‘ beats. “
“ The combination of these two elements is then solidified with the, once again, Fender precision bass. Nuff said about that. “
“ All of these things so far were recorded as one complete performance. “
“ So was the next element, the Fender Stratocaster, with Whammy Bar, gets a real workout and I kept 90 percent of the performance in tact. “
“ After the madness of doing a 47 minute guitar solo, mellotrons, glissando guitar, synths and rhythm guitars were then placed accordingly to round out the Ever Important: Arrangement. “
“ Mixed. Mastered….Presto, Magico, Finito. “
