Alex Machacek: Rich Murray's guitar channel interview

RM: You've mentioned that your original intention was to compose over only a small section of Marco's solo. When you first decided to write for the whole thing, what were your initial thoughts or concerns?

AM: Yes, initially my plan was to make a drum recomposing CD with different drummers. (I still am planning to do that eventually) Later on Marco came up with his Normalizer 2 idea – giving the same solo to different musicians/composers. My main concern was the fact that there is no pause in the entire solo. I just pictured the listener and was a bit worried that 51min of music with no gap could be a bit overwhelming. Full interview
