Michael 'aTonal' Vick returns as VVV in his new release Sound As Music Presents: ProNounced Triple-V (VVV). Most of this recording features Vick playing all instruments & many found objects to create a unique sonic-palette, hence 'Sound As Music'.
"microtones are in the air, microtones are everywhere.
then why do most compose with 12 when an infinite
amount of pitches are constantly floating around?
go outside & listen with awareness to the beauty
of the natural world & frequencies that sing
to our subconscious. then compose without
a fixed-pitched instrument or 12 on the
brain & from there hear the harmonic
beauty that is you in the world &
communicating with the universe
or Just to a friend emphasizing the
consonance & dissonance with pure
harmony as your sonic-guide" - VVV
"I feel we're at a turning point where the fretless guitar is shedding its novelty status and becoming a viable instrument in its own right." - M. Vick in Guitar Player
"He plays fretted and fretless guitars, and sometimes his music takes a little getting used to." - PBS Guitar Show FRET NET
"Bizarre indeed......!" - www.unfretted.com
"This stuff is very foreign to the uninitiated & should be approached with a venturesome open mind." - www.ProgressionMagazine.com
