Adrian Utley, the guitarist for UK trip hop group Portishead, has released a video of performance footage from his upcoming album Guitar Orchestra In C. The album uses an orchestra of guitarists to reinterpret Terry Riley’s In C. According to the Portishead Facebook, “…consists of 24 musicians from Bristol: 19 guitarists including John Parish (PJ Harvey), Thought Forms, and Jim Barr (Portishead live band); 4 organs and a bass clarinet.“.
Utley states, “I’ve been exploring the sonic possibilities of massed guitars for a while now in various contexts from pure noise to the sacred choral music of Arvo Part. So it was interesting to see what would happen if we had 20 electric guitars plus organs playing ‘In C’. It is an amazing piece of writing and original thought. A new free idea of organised group playing. The beginnings of what we know as minimalism.”
Head on below to watch the footage.
