Sigmata - (Glenn Phillips - Wavesremix)
danstearns

a little ambient, microtonal (on microtonal) guitar music that for the life of me always conjures up David Lynch- It is all created from the already created, uniquely voiced guitar music of Glenn Phillips--who I know in 2 notes, because he owns his sound that much---big influence and a good man-- Thanks for the memories Glen\ --Dan

Sigmata - The Seventh Sun Of Cinnibus
danstearns

A remix of one of my favorite collabs, this one-off with the great multi-instrumentalist, and fellow pitch/music/meter experimenter, Jacky Ligon. We did this one through the mail, built off a 3-Handman track using the music of 80's-period Kazumi Watanabe and his great Mobo Club records- check them. Other things turn up too, but here's the Team Cinnebus: 3-Handman -turntables (use of Kazumi Watanabe, and some Henry Cow), and loops Dan Stearns - electric guitar, bass, keyboards, drum loops and other percussion and sounds and co/composition Jacky Ligon - Keyboards, synths, MIDI wind instrument, drum loops, percussion, and co/composition

There's Something Dead in Here, in Three Parts (Vai/Sigmata)
danstearns

Reshaped from Steve Vai's seminal, avant alt-guitar mind-blower, “There's Something Dead in Here”, this is: There's Something Dead in Here, in Three Parts Some words about this piece- Dan Stearns Steve Vai – Look him up, if you don't know him: He is an immense talent and guitarist of note, having worked with Frank Zappa on some of the hardest music ever written for electric, 'quote/unquote' “ROCK” guitar. Before all that, he recorded a record in 1984, Flex-Able, and it challenged everyones game. This was some kind of crazy Eddie Van Halen, retooled by some Robert K. Dick SI/FI with a whole new level of  skill-sets and possibilities.....and, Boooom! I hand it at once, and understood: Whole new ballgame, buddy! And an entire generation of players turned their attention to hi-tech guitar..... Steve had a very mature monster in him by the time he met Zappa.....now, I now he got a lot from his older friend Joe Satriani, as a beginner...right? Well, Tweedledee and Tweedledum..... that's a pretty good head start! But what transpired between Satriani and Zappa is unbelievable, really.....the dude's a freak-- Professionalism was one thing he had in spades, having many times covered for hard guitar rock drama shows of note, and it led to some questionable artistic choices on the biggest stages too, but he was a true rock 'n' roll trooper.... filled in for virtuosos in absentia, like the Truly mighty EVH himself, and “that guy”.....yeah, the young Malmsteen at the top of his game with the split from Alcatraz, and off to Rising Force and spawning or co-spawning the whole Shrapnel/GIT phenomenon into it's Neo-classical and outward move to hard-rock, and fusion monsters, and even classic rock gods too. Malmsteen had the goods, but he was always a front-runner, and a what a stud/star- dude had Elvis, “IT”, and such a gorgeous tone/touch on a Strat too. I liked his playing enough to practice a little more and set out on a mission to tighten up my RH technique. Believe it or not, I also got into the fusing of Bach and classical ideas into my playing and thinking....and Paganini!!!! Well, if Malmsteen was no Paganini, it mattered not, and in his day he was King of the Hill for a bit too, the baddest of the bad.....and that's not bad for a guy whose imaginative capacities seemed to have topped out at 16....he had the drive in spades, but not the engine for art. Vai had that Van Gouge ear, he was a mystic who solved Rubix cubes others could only twiddled at. He no doubt redoubled that under Zappa's tutelage, as a wet-dream guitarist/transcriptionist come true, fore he could play, or transcribe....most, anything.....and he was a showman and a peacock too- wow. Boy genius, superman stuff, right? Yes.........and no, but that's a whole other discussion..... remember, I saw Alan Holdsworth, and so forth and so on......... But Steve truly changed the whole game...he has a lot of clones and even a few guys who appeared to get the same xZY chromosome, like Ron Thal. Anyway, this is just a re-imagining of Steve's piece, “There's Something Dead in Here”, that came pretty organically, using also fragments and sections of the music of Magma, and, in the end, Beethoven to complete the three parts. But the idea for Steve's music, was to make it, “extra sparkle”... and that brought me to want to want to hear it like György Ligeti's Articulation. So, in the end I used Jorgen Plaetner's graphic score, Beta. To me it was a match made in heaven, or someplace off-earth. Hope it is enjoyed.
