IRDR08 • Released:

Álvaro Domene

HEPTAD (Vol. II)

Here is the second volume of Álvaro Domene's HEPTAD project and book of compositions for solo seven string electric guitar and live electronics. 

**** WATCH the performance of the piece "Dismissed As Chimerical" on YouTube:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YuayuNel7g ****


Expanding upon the compositional and aesthetic concepts developed for the first volume, these 7 pieces seem to have a more percussive and aggressive sound, with a focus on asymmetrical rhythmic activity and melodic multi-directionality. 

If the first release took sonic inspiration from avant garde string quartet music, this second release almost sounds as if two wild pianists were functioning in a duo setting. Still, it's all interpreted on an electric guitar with meticulously programmed pitch delay algorithms that assisted Domene in shaping the harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic palette of each composition. 

Heptad Volume II is one more remarkable accomplishment by a composer and instrumentalist who keeps showing us how different an electric guitar still can sound in today's world. 

Play loud, enjoy, and also make sure you listen to the first volume in case you missed it:  ilusorecords.bandcamp.com/album/heptad
