It has just occurred to me that I haven't really posted about my last couple contributions to the 21MG Series at SSR! David and I are still extremely proud of this series and so here's the scoop on the last couple I did...
BRIAN GRAINGER / KERGUELEN PLATEAU
21MG SERIES / PILL-J2
Kerguelen Plateau, named for a continent-size landmass that remains completely underwater, embodies the perfect complement to David's Bathymetry piece. Melodic guitars weave in and out of a warm-water drone, and a bit of Roy Montgomery influence can be traced here. This piece is filled with bright blue and orange tones and accurately conveys the over-100-degree temperatures active in Brian's southern home this summer.
BRIAN GRAINGER / PAINTED GREEN
21MG SERIES / PILL-K2
We present a new 21MG Series installment from Brian in the form of Painted Green. This guitar piece coincidentally goes very hand-in-hand with Nine Billion Names, melodically and texturally, even though they were recorded separately. A sort of an ode to Summer, waving goodbye to the glowing heat and the wet urban lawns that overtook the last 4 months, while welcoming a new season of vibrant colors, festive smells and cooler weather.
