Have we been shot into the outer limits of the solar system? Heavily affected cymbal splashes and squalls of feedback whiz by like space junk missing your head by inches. Disorienting and daring, this 1:18 sonic adventure.
Eric Johnson says:
“Like the beginning part, which is Awaken, this is complete improvisation. I just laid down the track and put more and more layers on it. Every bit of it was made up on the spot. I did it for fun and was right in the moment. We slowed down the drums and played around with sounds some.
“I think I used my ‘62 Strat through a 50-watt Marshall. There's an E-Bow, too. I have one in my closet, and every couple of years I figure out a reason to pull it out. The section that is Traverse seemed to call for the E-Bow. It’s a lot of fun to use, but you don’t want to overdo it. It’s a nice little flavor.“
