We never called her 'Grammama' it was always 'Granny…

Bioluminescent Sounds - Ableton Live Production  

For years I have been producing music and performing under the name GUITARI using new ways to incorporate the guitar into electronic music production.

I had the honor to tour Iceland, Sweden, Germany and Copenhagen last winter with my dear friend Ilen Halogram. While on that trip we did a collaborative effort with an incredible crew of Video Mapping Genius's called Xenorama. Check them out they are incredible. This is a stereo bounce of a performance I did with a live set I built for the collaboration.
