Adrian Belew performs one of his innovative guitar compositions. A demonstration of a variety of technology and playing techniques spoken about in parts 1 & 2 of this 3 part series on the history and future of guitar sound. Adrian's professional career as a musician starts in the 70s and includes collaboration with the Talking Heads, King Crimson, David Bowie, Frank Zappa and Nine Inch Nails among a plethora of solo work. Throughout that time he has been known as an prodigious creator and imaginative innovator with a unique style.
Some of the technology and techniques at play here are midi instrumentation, layering and combining effects such as echo lengths with pitch shifts, loop pedals, compound rhythm structures and time signatures and the cutting edge guitar design.
