My vocation is more in composition really than in anything else. Building up harmonies. Using the guitar, orchestrating the guitar like an army—a guitar army. I think that’s where it’s at, really, for me. I’m talking about actual orchestration in the same way that you’d orchestrate a classical piece of music.
Instead of using brass and violins you treat the guitars with synthesizers or other devices; give them different treatments, so that they have enough frequency range and scope and everything to keep the listener as totally committed to it as the player is. It’s a difficult project, but it’s one that I’ve got to do.
