Morgan Craft – The Living Mythology

cover copy

No software was used for the generation of any sound.
All sounds made by, on, or through solo electric guitar.
Improvised and recorded live.

There is a part on this record that I ‘doubted’ the above sentence, but knowing the Rough Americana crew as I do, I believe in them and any statements that make.  “How the hell did he create that jungle break only with his guitar?” is another way of putting it. Hours, days, months of picking up his stringed instrument to delve into the vibrations that exist between one and two.  150 continuous days in the studio to be exact.

RA, Morgan Craft and Mutamassik always present their respective theories with their music, no change here, you can depend on them to be thorough, consistent and honest. If they were ever presented with a rule book but was burnt upon receipt.

“Science relies on precise mathematics to produce vibratory phenomena that is not seen as music, per se. Never trust anyone who claims that music is mathematics. I think we’ve all heard that before, time and time again, that music is mathematics, to the point where it becomes taken for granted, that music is mathematics. It’s not true. Music is not mathematics. Music can be approximated using mathematics, but will always fall short of the truth.”

Apologies to RA for saddling them with my 666th post.
