All music on this CD recorded in Christmas days, on 7 and 6 string guitar with new guitar conception and technique by Andrei Krylov, design & building of this guitar by Sebastien Doucet http://deuceguit.ca/ (Gatineau, Quebec).
I used both necks separately for different pieces on this album.
This guitar has 2 necks: 6 string with midi pickup and 7 string (acoustic) .
Acoustic body, headless necks. Very small size with normal length (650 mm) of the strings. 24 frets.
7 string neck partially fretless. Both necks could be used at the same time ( by playing with both hands 7 string neck
and playing different harmonics with right hand on 6 string neck at the same time, or by playing 6 string neck with left hand only when right
hand play harmonics on 7 string neck, or percussive sound of guitar'body at the same time)
7 string neck can be used for different styles - classical, flamenco, folk etc. Fretless part of the neck let you make original "eastern" sounds,
or imitate fretless bass. 7 string also sound like authentic bass and guitar played at the same time (almost as you have 2 players - bassist and guitarist)
6 string can play many types and styles of music and instruments through midi converters and processors (like VG 99) etc.
Both necks have nylon strings. Playing technique includes elements of classical, acoustic, flamenco, jazz and rock, indian, arabic and russian styles.
Andrei used different tunings for each neck in this piece.
Side sound hole also let you hear your own acoustic sound.
Recorded at Andrei Krylov home studio in Quebec.
Everything recorded live: no overdubs, no prerecorded sound, no loops.
This album was created in a little cabin on the lakeshore surrounded by pines and granite rocks. With influence of waves, Rocks, pines and Moon in night skies.
