More about TRIANGLE RHYSING:MUSIC FOR MASSED GUITARS:
An original suite for multiple groups of electric guitars, TRIANGLE RHYSING was created as a way for local musicians to collaborate on a massive scale. First performed in 2011 with twenty-two musicians, the 2012 reprise of TR included an ensemble of nearly three dozen. For this third outing, TR will feature more than 50 guitarists + drums + cello and, for the first time, vocals -- nearly 60 musicians in all. TR is composed and conducted by Andras Fekete and Matthew Guess.

"...When Rhys Chatham, Glenn Branca or any other composer gathers several guitaristsófrom three to 1,000óin one space, the generally accepted term is "massed guitar symphony." But that phrase puts the guitarists in an unnecessary and incorrect box of polity and high society; indeed, though Chatham and Branca make precisely composed and arranged music, the same impulse that drives a teenager to buy a cheap six-string and plug into a cheap Peavey amplifier isn't so far removed from the impulse behind letting dozens of guitarists do the same. It's catharsis by volume, victory by overtone, glory by sound. To wit, the idea first occurred to Chatham after he saw The Ramones play in New York in the late '70s. Triangle Rhysing explores this idea... Get ready to feel the sound." óGrayson Currin, THE INDEPENDENT WEEKLY

More about BRYCE CLAYTON EIMAN:
"...a fugue for chainsaws, magnetic interference and electrocuted elephants, [Eiman] locates a surprising diversity of hue... Chaotic bass waves and richly textured distortion build until they scream like rending sheet metal, actual chords dropping out like sprung rivets... On the whole, it evokes one of Richard Serra's massive metal sculptures ó not the calm, elegant final shapes, but the brutally physical process that creates them." óBrian Howe, THE INDEPENDENT WEEKLY

Re: “The Year in Music 2008: Used guitars

Really good interview, with some excellent insights into the local indy band scene.

The takeaway is that there is little money to be made playing original music, but you do it anyway, because you have to, because, as Crawford says, "what else are you going to do"?

That, and the absurdity of people pining away for the "old" Chapel Hill scene. A scene's goodness and vibrancy is utterly dependent on the people in it, and connection you have to them. What these guys are doing, meeting with an expanding group of friends at Vespa's, playing in each others bands -- *making contact with people In Real Life* -- what they are doing is essentially rediscovering the techniques and as well as the sheer pleasure of building a new scene.

(And you know, it all starts with putting down the darn game controller and getting the hell off the couch. Surprising how many people these days just don't get that.)

Here's to the new local scene -- and good luck at your CD release party at Local 506 this Saturday!
