DAVID TORN & ROBERT FRIPP

Australian Guitar - - Feature -

GREAT­EST ACHIEVE­MENTS

Torn and Fripp are both mas­ters of the art of loop­ing, and both have played with David Bowie (who seemed to be a mag­net for in­no­va­tive gui­tar play­ers). Both gui­tarists have such sin­gu­lar styles, and yet such broad discogra­phies that they are im­pos­si­ble to nail down or to steal too much in­flu­ence from. WHERE TO START Sun­day Torn’s work on Bowie’s “Sun­day” is a bright elec­tronic sound­scape built from lay­ers of crys­tal clear gui­tar. › BOSS LEVEL Mother Hold The Can­dle Steady While I Shave The Chicken s Lip

Pulled from King Crim­son’s THRaKaTTaK live al­bum. Fripp and co-gui­tarist Adrian Belew weave flat-out weird tex­tures and melodies around each other, all im­pro­vised live us­ing their song “Thrak” as a spring­board.›
