Rhys Chatham


With nods to LaMonte Young, Eno and other masters of the minimalist cannon, Rhys leads his "guitar army" in creating lush oceans of sound. Expanding his orchestra to 400 players, this daunting task actually results in one of the most beautiful and restrained tonal pieces I've heard in quite a while. Recorded live in the basilica of the Sacre-Coeur, he leads the players with precision and discipline; the movements shimmer and swell within the contours of the chapel. Each note resonates from the walls as if only being played by a handful of people. Very few minimalist pieces can emote such a feeling of humanity, while still remaining serene. The shear collective effort of so many individuals all contributing to a singular venture is reflected in every moment of A Crimson Grail as the tones turn from euphoric to almost sinister to the edge of epic. Chatham has turned the electric guitar into a divining rod for the soul.

Nice orchestration with all of the guitars. Too bad there was absolutely zero musical content. It was sort of like listening to Bolero written while on quaaludes.
