Blotted Science Posts "Cretaceous Chasm" Guitar Instructional Video
Blotted Science guitarist/mastermind Ron Jarzombek (Spastic Ink) has released an instructional video for the song "Cretaceous Chasm" from the band's "The Animation Of Entomology" EP, which can be viewed below . In it, the guitarist explains the application of the twelve-tone system devised specifically for the writing process of the EP, which will be the subject of a forthcoming DVD, titled "Dissecting Bugs."
States Jarzombek: “I’ve been mentioning this ’12-Tones In Fragmented Rows’ system in interviews and it seems that even non-musicians are interested in it, so I put together this video to give listeners some insight on how it all works. I thought it would be best to break this all down into its most basic theoretical form, and play examples of its use. I chose to post the basic guitar tracks to 'Cretaceous Chasm' because it is the simplest song on the EP and is the easiest to grasp theoretically. The song will also appear first on my upcoming instructional DVD, 'Dissecting Bugs,' where I will go in-depth with all of the 12-tone theory, and play all guitar parts on all songs from the EP. Things do get a bit complicated when melodies and solos are laid on top of the note groups, but we’ll get to all of that good stuff on the DVD."
More information about the sample video, including the transcription/tabs, can be found at this location. Blotted Science also recently synced up the "Cretaceous Chasm" track with a scene from the movie "King Kong." Check out the clip here.
"The Animation Of Entomology," which also features the talents of bassist Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse) and drummer Hannes Grossmann (Obscura), will get its European release via U.K. based Basick Records today, November 28th. The follow-up to the band's 2007 "The Machinations Of Dementia" full-length album was produced and mixed by Ron Jarzombek and recorded in San Antonio, Texas; Tampa, Florida; and V. Santura's Woodshed Studios in Landshut, Germany where the drums were cut. Mastering duties were once again handled by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark.
