Tim Brady Quotes
The use of electronics is a natural extension of the instrument - it is an electric guitar. So we guitarists have been plugging into something since 1931, and we are not about to stop now. Current advances in technology means we can have a huge array of sounds at our fingertips, and this offers amazing possibilities to the contemporary composer. It is always a guitar (I don't play synthesizer) but it becomes something else all together - more like sculpting sound in real time using metal wires, 5 fingers and a pick.
I've collaborated with many composers over the past 20 years, and I always learn something new about the guitar, about music and about people. Paul music is very different from mine, but he has a very clear idea as to what he is doing and why he is doing it, so I know we are going to create a work which pushes us both go beyond our expectations. That's the whole point of creative music, and we hope to bring the audience along for the ride.
