Here Methenyworks with an extraordinary set-up of acoustic instruments, assembled for him by a visionary team of inventors. Using one-of-a-kind software programs and solenoid switches, Metheny controls each instrument via his guitar and an array of pedals. Orchestrionics is what Metheny calls this new method of performing. The resulting album, recorded in midtown Manhattan's MSR studio after months of experimentation at home, is a marvel of the digital era, yet the record sounds beautifully, stirringly, human. In other words, timeless.
