ELECTRIC DREAM, the first solo CD played by italian guitarist Marco Pavin, came out in 2001. It is entirely dedicated to solo contemporary electric guitar.
The CD is composed of 5 tunes, for a total duration of 60 minutes.
The first piece is the well-known Electric Counterpoint by Steve Reich, in a completely electric version, closer to the original author's purpose.
The american composer and Brandeis professor Eric Chasalow is present with the piece 'Scuse Me, manifestly dedicated to the great guitarist Jimi Hendrix (Purpe Haze).
Virtual Melodies by Michele Biasutti is a tune that recalls Ligeti's perpetual motion.
J…X, by Lucio Garau, is a work also dedicated to Jimi Hendrix.
Electric Dream, by guitarist Marco Pavin himself, is a piece between jazz and contemporary music.
Characteristic of the CD is the presence of solo electric guitar in contemporary music context, never academic and always looking at other realities of today's cultured music, such as jazz. Electric guitar, matched with effects, appears in various contexts: as pure solo instrument, in multi-track recording, combined with live-electronics and with computer-generated sounds.
