Below is a commentary by the label.

"Veteran guitarist and composer Anthony Wilson's latest album, Collodion, is a collection of 11 instrumental tracks full of sonic exploration and surprises, featuring Anthony Wilson playing nearly every instrument and a special Guests include Daniel Rotem (tenor saxophone), Anna Butters (bass), Mark Guiliana (drums), Rob Muth (strings), Julian Knowles (trumpet), and Jonah Levine (trombone). There is.

He would show up one day without a song, a sheet of music, or even an instrument. What unfolded was a curious mix of improvisation, composition, and production, all happening more or less simultaneously. The goal of the day's stay was to almost complete one song.

"I never brought my own guitar in for a long time," Anthony Wilson says. "I decided that doing something with instruments that I knew well wasn't the direction I wanted to go. Pete (studio owner and producer on Collodion) had some great 335s and I also have a beautiful old Martin in incredible condition, so I'll try hooking it up. I tried a lot of things, but I just couldn't get a traditional guitar part. What do I need to do to move beyond just playing?I automatically tried to play without straying from the habits of my hands, and from the vocabulary I normally use when I sit down to play. I was trying to play in a less coordinated, more intuitive way.

Collodion is a viscous substance used in wet plate photography and theatrical makeup. Painting this will bring your image to life. "

"Collodion, the latest album of veteran guitarist and composer, Anthony Wilson, is 11 instrumental tracks brimming with sonic exploration and surprise, an electroacoustic experiment in which Wilson plays nearly all the instruments, with contributions from special guests Daniel Rotem (tenor saxophone), Anna Butterss (bass), Mark Guiliana (drums), Rob Moose (strings), Julien Knowles (trumpet), Jonah Levine (trombone).

The idea was to show up on a given day with nothing — no song, no charts, not even any instruments. What unfolded was a curious mix of improvisation, composition and production, all more or less simultaneously. The goal for each daylong visit was to have one piece largely completed.

“I never brought in a guitar of my own the whole time,” Wilson says. “The thought of doing things with instruments that I knew well, I just felt that wasn't where I wanted to go. Pete [studio owner and producer on Collodion] has a couple great 335's, beautiful old Martins in incredible condition, he's got a gorgeous Jaguar, all kinds of stuff. If it was there, let's plug it in. We just tried things. But it couldn't be a traditional tone. We'd ask ourselves, 'What does it need that will take it out of the realm of me just playing a guitar part?' I tried to play in a way that wasn't out of my hand habits, that wasn't t coming from the vocabulary I always play when I sit down to play. Automatically you go into the stuff you know. I was trying to be a little more uncoordinated and intuit ways of playing that could add to this other sonic thing that we were doing .”
