Once upon a time the future was a place of infinite progress and optimism. Right Brain Records’ new compilation album aims to recapture that spirit. It’s called Gitaristo Futura and its theme is simple: We focus on the most familiar of instruments and ask, where will we go from here?
This record includes original instrumental tracks by 13 guitarists from all over the Earth: Austria, Italy, Basque Country, England, Argentina, Tasmania and distant corners of North America. Some pieces are electric, some acoustic and others barely recognizable as guitar. A bunch of our contributors are well-established, several have toured internationally, while others are emerging. Two things unite these innovative musicians: they sound uniquely like themselves, and their musical visions help all of us, their listeners, imagine new realities. Listen to the album here.
