The Idea to do a Conduction based Electric Guitar Choir came to me in September of 2011, when I was teaching a Conduction workshop for the music department at the University of Agder in Kristiansand Norway as part of the education / outreach program of the PUNKT FESTIVAL.

It was my second year doing this at the festival and I was working with the entire freshman class (all thirty-eight of them). In this very eclectic ensemble there happened to be 11 singers and 7 electric guitarists and I figured if I was going to have a vocal choir…..why not have a guitar choir as well.

In January of 2013 I started the ZEN NOIR project, originally with 8 guitars and two percussion, which evolved into 6 and 2. We worked together once a month, played one concert in November and recorded on January 12th 2014.

The sonic range of the electric guitar is so rich and when combined with the shape shifting flexibility of the Conduction Lexicon the possibilities are massive. I feel that with ZEN NOIR we have just scratched the surface of where a Conduction based guitar choir could journey together over time.
