Fractal Guitar 2 is the successor to the first Fractal Guitar album, the later has been quite an adventure during a most unique time in history. The journey started prior to the Pandemic on November 2, 2019 in Oakland, California, when Henry, Chris, Andy and Stephan were recording tracks at MegaSonic studio. After returning to Zürich, the world as we knew it soon changed drastically due to the quickly spreading Coronavirus. While it was a time to rethink the values that had governed our lives, it was also a disguised opportunity to record an album in lockdown.
Much like the first Fractal Guitar album, Stephan comments how he owes a great deal to all the fantastic musicians who play on this album, especially to Jon, Barry, Andi and Markus. Special thanks to Tim Motzer, Michael Manring and Bill Laswell, who were all part of this project, but only appear on "Fractal Guitar 2 Remixes", a companion album also available on Bandcamp.
For those seeking ambient journeys, this is an album that will take you there.
Released March 9, 2021.
