Last Visible Dog

My Late Night Electric Guitar Drone ‘Blues’ Project. When I Record This Project I Generally Hand A Mic Out Of A Window Sometime Around Midnight (Usually On Rainy Nights), And Improvise Along With The Incidental Sounds, Building Up Layers (With More Guitars, Organs, Violin) Until I Have A ‘Finished’ Piece. Its Kind Of ‘Gestural’ And Lush (Lots Of Reverb…)
