Slave Planet

Slave Planet is a work composed for prepared electric guitars. The title is taken from the sci-fi book by Laurence M. Janifer. One of the guitars is fretless, which allows for fluid glissandi, and analog synthesis-like sounds. Much of the piece is in homage to classic sci-fi film music of the ’60s-‘70’s, and there also a speaking/rapping section, as well as surprise audience member interaction.
