Adrian Galysh Teams Up With PledgeMusic.com For “Venusian Sunrise: 20th Anniversary Edition”
Marking the 20th anniversary of his debut release, Venusian Sunrise (1998), Adrian Galysh will be re-recording the entire work, sighting, “Venusian Sunrise was recorded in my parents basement on a single Alesis 8-track ADAT recorder. While the performances are the best I could do with limited resources at the age of 22 - it lacks the richer guitar tones, huge advances in recording technology, and realistic orchestral sounds of today, but maybe most importantly it lacks: real drums!”.
Galysh adds, “The new version of Venusian Sunrise will be performed and recorded the way wished I could have done back the, but with the tools and know how that didn’t exist in the day”.
Production limitations aside, Venusian Sunrise was one of Galysh’s best selling CDs, coming out at the height of compact disk sales and the growth of independent record labels. Released independently, it garnered coverage in guitar magazines and a growing number of online review websites, firmly establishing Adrian Galysh as an up-and-coming player in guitar circles.
Upon listening, guitarist Jennifer Batten said, “The compositions are well thought out, as opposed to just throwing something down to shred over. But when itʼs solo time, everything is there as well.”
20th Century Guitar Magazine described Venusian Sunrise as, “A real leap forward in both sound and scope in the world of instrumental rock”, and further proclaimed, “Venusian Sunrise makes it clear that Adrian Galysh is a significant new arrival on the jazz and rock guitar scene.”
Venusian Sunrise: 20th Anniversary Edition will offer listeners both the new recordings as well as the original recordings, which have been long sold out, and out of print.
