Devin Townsend Has Shared Over An Hour Of Ambient New Music

Devin Townsend Has Shared Over An Hour Of Ambient New Music

Devin Townsend has released over an hour of improvised ambient guitar-driven music. He shared the compilation online yesterday, May 31st, and had the following to say in regards to it:

“So, its been a strange week, and I have been writing a lot of strange music. Amidst the more tumultuous stuff thats appeared, I often find it therapeutic for me to just simply play guitar in the mornings, and over the years I’ve kind of ‘developed’ (for lack of a better descriptor) a sort of chilled out, Ambient guitar technique.

This isn’t meant to be focussed on, its meant to be a sort of wash that you can play while working, chilling, or creating something (thats my hope at least). I like playing like this, and in fact, Id say 80% of what I play with a guitar in my hand over the last decade or so ends up sounding something like this.

I had recorded some of it in the background of the Podcasts (which I will be continuing) and was asked to post it, but it made more sense to me to do a fresh one here. Lots of people still think Im secretly the same raging metalhead I was in my mid 20’s, but its been a few decades since I legitimately felt that way I’d say.

This improvisation is one take (with a bathroom break I edited out) and I used a Sadowsky Telecaster and a Fractal AX-8 for the sound. Art for this (and the Podcast) are done by my good friend Travis Smith at Seempieces.net.

Hopefully its helpful to some of you who need a sonic break.

Thanks again for the ability to do this. Ill release this in a physical form if theres any interest.

I really like echo.

Peace.
