For the Forte Over Forte session, I recorded MIDI data comprised of a hybrid between my guitar playing and its interaction with effects. Only during the first song of Forte is MIDI heard (in the form of drum sounds) but MIDI was captured during each song. For Rust Svelte, I played the unaltered MIDI (neither time nor content is changed) through the Una Corda plug-in; an intrepid listener could sync up Forte Over Forte & Rust Svelte perfectly. Could. :-) The effect here is Antheil-esque, a (much) less dense Black MIDI, a spacious impossible that retains the air of possible. I've always played guitar with a nod towards piano voicings, so this sounds to me relatively idiomatic if hyperarticulated; my percussiveness/varied dynamic approach also translates well to the fortuitously semantically-bound pianoforte. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for listening.

One of my favorite albums ever! It beautifully captures the sound and spirit of where we live. I was honored to be the engineer for the session, and it is a highlight in my history as a record mogul. Killick
