John Frusciante goes acid house

2015-01-29 by Raul Stanciu STAFF | 22 Comments
Ex-RHCP guitar prodigy John Frusciante has revealed a new project that sees him embracing acid house under the moniker Trickfinger. The self-titled debut is set to be out in early April through Acid Test.

Regarding the new direction, Frusciante mentioned: “I started being serious about following my dream to make electronic music, and to be my own engineer, five years ago. For the 10 years prior to that, I had been playing guitar along with a wide range of different types of programmed synthesizer and sample-based music, emulating what I heard as best as I could. I found that the languages machines forced programmers to think in had caused them to discover a new musical vocabulary.

“In 2007, I started to learn how to program all the instruments we associate with acid house music and some other hardware. For about seven months I didn’t record anything. Then I started recording, playing 10 or so synced machines through a small mixer into a CD burner. This was all experimental acid house, my skills at making rock music playing no part in it whatsoever. I had lost interest in traditional songwriting and I was excited about finding new methods for creating music. I’d surround myself with machines, program one and then another and enjoy what was a fascinating process from beginning to end.”

I doubt that will ever happen. He's still producing stuff for the Black Knights so he's still in that 'place', he needs Josh to come and save him and make another 6 albums in 6 months with him.

I actually think I can get behind this album if it's gonna have vocals on it, otherwise it'll be just 'okay'.
