Bach - Tocatta
Bach - Tocatta Track number: 4 Year: 2010 Album: Studio Rude 1 Genre: Other
This is an arrangement of Bach's famous Tocatta for organ. I've expanded on the theme enough to explore some of the electric guitar's devices and capabilities, and used a tap delay to reinterpret the effect of cathedralic reverb. The texture of the fugue that normaly follows the tocatta doesn't lend itself to the electric solo guitar, so it has been omitted.
Irish Fantasie Track number: 3 Year: 2010 Album: Studio Rude 1 Genre: Other
This is an experiment for solo electric guitar. I have composed an irish jig in arpeggios (which serve as a metaphore for the broken coastline of Ireland) as a casing for a lovely, but obscure Bach Gavotte. The original Gavotte itself was strangely concealed by bach within another piece which does not transfer well to the solo elcetric guitar, thus necessitating a new container. By composing the container in the relative major key, I have clearly defined the ternary form of the piece with contrasting modality, but tied them together by mood and meter. I also added a flange effect that is intended to simulate the capricious winds and hills of the irish coast.
