Daniel Realpe: Gaze of the Unknown - first single from upcoming EP.

This is the first single from my upcoming EP.

Song: "Gaze of the Unknown"

It was inspired by the initial riff which came to me at an improvising session at my place. I wanted to create an atmosphere that would bump you up and then at the same time give the song a twist. It ended up having that "chase" factor. When I hear the fast start, images of flying fast come to my mind.

Ola Englund: Aristides Instruments Refines the Guitar With the New 060

Aristides Instruments Refines the Guitar With the New 060

HAARLEM, NETHERLANDS – Utilizing an exoskeleton design made of a semi-monocoque construction, the latest guitar from Aristides Instruments expands on the companies innovations regarding body design, components and mechanics. The new 060 provides plenty of horsepower and performance to deliver whatever a guitarist might want play. Prototypes have made an appearance at the Aristides Instrument Open House event earlier this year and Ola Englund has posted a video demo. Now available to the masses, customers can place orders through authorized dealers or direct from the factory.

The 060 is a one piece constructed, 25.5” scale electric guitar available with passive or active electronics. The passive models come equipped with either Seymour Duncan or Bare Knuckle pickups. A five-way switch combined with a single volume control and single tone provide for a wide variety of pickup configurations. The active models are available with Seymour Duncan Blackouts, EMG81/60 combo and EMG 57/66 combo, a three way toggle super switch, a single volume and a single tone control. All components, for both passive and active models, are MEC Electronics. The C shaped neck is 1.65” wide at the nut and topped off with a compound (12”-16”) radius ebony fretboard fitted with 24 medium jumbo frets. Hardware is available in chrome, black or gold finishes and includes a Hipshot Hardtail with Atristides custom made stainless steel Tone Block or Floyd Rose Original tremolo, Hipshot Griplock tuners and Schaller straplocks. Each guitar is set up with either a Graphtech Black Tusq nut or Floyd Rose locking nut, D’Addario Nickel Wound XL 10-56 strings and outfitted with an anti-theft security microchip. Available in matte black, white high gloss or Deep Sky Blue Matte Metallic finishes the guitar ships with a Gator XL hard case.

The history of Aristides Instruments begins in 1995 when a group of Dutch scientists teamed with the Technical University Delft to develop a material with perfect acoustic properties. By evaluating the woods traditionally used in making musical instruments, analysis led to a technical study of cell structures and differences between them. If they could answer the question “What happens to a sound wave in a material at a cell level?” it would then be possible to design the ideal cell structure. 15 years of research ultimately led to the development of the tone material called Arium.

By 2007, Aristides Instruments started developing guitars with the new material. Focused on achieving incredible playability, innovative design and utilizing the acoustic properties of Arium, they teamed with the world renowned Bouwmeester van Rens design agency. Since their development, the guitars have received international recognition in both the musical and design worlds for their revolutionary achievements.

Aristides Instruments is not the first to build instruments out of materials other than wood. But Aristides Instruments is different. Arium has been specifically developed to not only equal, but also improve the quality and performance of a material used to build a musical instrument. Arium has no fiber structure. This allows it to vibrate three dimensionally, increasing sustain and volume. Arium also does not contain water so it is more stable and requires less maintenance. By creating an exoskeleton design using a semi-monocoque construction, sound waves can resonate throughout the entire instrument without disruption, providing the player and listener with an improved aural experience.
