Timo Laine, with his inventive use of the guitar synthesizer, and masterful guitar playing, goes a long way here with the scope of his music. As in Timo's previous CD's, which are known for his pioneering works in guitar synthesizer technology, this CD breaks the mold by being exclusively an instrumental work. Passion, emotion, and
inspiration, will be self evident as soon as one opens their
ears to this musical expression. Large in sound scope, the master of this art form comes closer than ever to open the minds of the daring to explore.
To the folks that do not know what a guitar synthesizer is;
It is a way for a normal guitar player to access all instruments, and play them with the guitar. Put simply, a great guitarist can also play all the instruments in an orchestra, and world instruments that have been sampled. The biggest task is to learn to trigger each instrument in such a manner as to make it sound real. This demands extremely accurate guitar playing, and clean picking of the strings. Timo has proven over the years that he has mastered the skill going back as far as 1976, when he recorded the first world release of a fully polyphonic guitar sythesizer album called Symphonic Slam, on A&M Records.
