Almost 100 guitarists, three conductors and some serious riffage

  • Tim Brady is already well-known for his experimental compositions, and his recent performance at Toronto's Luminato Festival is no exception. He recruited almost 100 guitar players — a mix of pro and amateur — and separated them into three distinct groups, each with its own composer, for the "Instruments of Happiness" event. The objective? To simultaneously play the piece While 100 Guitars Gently Weep: Concerto for George. (The George in question, in case you didn't catch the reference, is George Harrison of The Beatles — one of the most revered figures in guitar history.)

    Watch the video:

    What it's like inside the almost-100-guitar performance at this year's Luminato Festival. 3:53
    How do you make this kind of performance come together? In this video, you'll get a view from the inside as conductor Gregory Oh leads his team through the ad libs and strict timing that all form part of the epic concerto. Musicians like Amanda Lewis are led second-by-second through the performance that has moments of quiet, some crushing crescendos and a solo by frontman Brady.

Looks like Tim's playing a Godin RG-3 Passion guitar.
