As a professional performing guitarist this work is a reflection on how digital technology has transformed the role of the instrumental performer in modern music making. 


The thumps of the guitar amps being turned on and off create a cyclical rhythm while the guitar adds harmonic and melodic accompaniment as it sits on the threshold of self oscillation between the 4 output sources.

The result is an exposition of the dualism of the strict repetition of digital automation and organic growth of the acoustic feedback loops.
