Spectropol is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Frets of Yore: A collection of guitART Pieces for the Immediate Past.
This compilation features musical responses to 26 graphic art works, each interpreted or reacted to twice, resulting in 52 guitar-based tracks spanning a wide range of styles. The graphic submissions included paintings, drawings, collage, digital manipulation, photography, and even a paper-cutting. Quirky acoustic compositions, European free improvisation, textural soundscapes, minimalism, noise, avant/RIO rock, Canterbury music and songs are among the approaches from the musicians, who include several major figures of the guitar world.
Spectropol will release Frets of Yore in April 2017 as a limited edition CDR and digital download. Spectropol and Guerrilla Graphics will also release a very limited edition with handmade cover, art print, and bonus disc.
