Der US-amerikanische Gitarrist STEVE VAI (Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth) präsentiert Single und Musikvideo zum brandneuen Song ‚Little Pretty‘. Das Video dazu wurde in seinem Allerheiligsten, der sogenannten “Harmony Hut” aufgenommen. Das neue Studioalbum „Inviolate“ erscheint am 28. Januar 2022.
STEVE VAI über den Song:
“In writing the chord changes for the solo section, and the solo itself, I dug deep into my academic music theory mind to create a set of chord changes where the harmonic atmosphere shifted on every change. The dense chord structures required a series of synthetic modes to navigate. This approach is along the lines of jazz and fusion players, but I knew I did not want it to sound anything like that and the solo had to be totally melodic. The results were pretty powerful in that the entire solo section evokes melodic atmospheric changes that shift dramatically but work together well.”
Und über das neue Album:
“It’s very ‘Vai. Someone else might be better than me at explaining what that is. But it’s just very honest music. Because a lot of my records, they’re long and there’s a lot of concepts and playing around with stories. This one has none of that. This is nine pretty dense all-instrumental compositions that I wanted to capture and record so I could get out there and play them live for people.”
