about

Allan Holdsworth’s 11th album, FLATTire, Music for a Non-Existent
Movie, opens with a plaintive guitar solo — the only guitar part on
the record — floating over a cacophonous mélange of chaotically
triggered drum samples awash in reverb — which, intentionally or
not, accurately reflected the acute emotional turmoil the composer
was undergoing at the time. Originally released in 2001, Flat Tire -
Music For A Non-Existent Movie is now a slightly remastered and
sonically reenhanced release on MoonJune Records, representing
Allan Holdsworth's first unaccompanied record, executed with the
Synthaxe guitar synthesizer. Holdsworth uses the instrument not
only to play bass lines, string- and choir-like chord swells, and
quicksilver single-note lines, but also to trigger drum patches.
The result is more of a one-man band effect than a solo guitar
performance.
