‘Octet’: A Virtual Guitar Ensemble, Featuring Tiffany Lloyd on Bass

‘Octet’…

For ‘Octet’ Guitarist/composer Chris Woods mixed a prog-hop artist from LA, an extreme shredder in Vienna, a fingerstyle acoustic award winner in Toronto and many more. >>> VIEW

‘Octet’ weaves a sonic tapestry of strident electric rhythm guitars, delicate acoustic sections and full-on shredding, with each artist getting to stretch their creative wings. From 5-string bass to 8-string fan-fret guitar, the piece is a celebration of the instrument, its versatility and diversity!

“I listened to what each of the artists do, spoke to them about writing for them and then wrote as minimally as possible, in order to allow them room for their own interpretation. The whole concept was to reflect their musical personalities. This was really important,” said Chris, who writes as The Chris Woods Groove Orchestra.

“I’m extremely happy with the way ‘Octet’ turned out. Everyone’s unique sound cuts through, but without detracting from the overall togetherness.”
