How unlike me. Periodically, I would record myself with a webcam or whatever device was nearby to capture ideas which I would later notate, usually by hand. I worked on [...]

Gutted cos I can't afford to get there this year and after watching the video and the effort put in (as always) even more so. Hope (and i'm sure it will) it all goes well.

Interesting. I hope the composition will be released on cd one day.
It "remains" me of some "contemporary classical music" (or what to call it).
I could here some Vai DNA in it, but hard to say yet before we can hear the real thing.

Will Vai be conducting himself?

I would love to hear some Vai compositions with smaller ensembles too.
My "music brain" find it hard to follow/hear more than 3-4 "contrapoint voices".
So I like it sometimes "simple", sweet and simple.
And a Vai chorale composition would be something to experience and hear I guess :)

Keep up the good work, but don't forget to "torture" the guitar!
