Eric Ghost I first found Soundscape Box 1 on CD several years ago and have played it so many times since. It is one of my all-time favorite albums that I reach for when I need something beautiful to bring peace and help me relax. It wasn't until later that I found Perry Frank's Youtube videos and discovered how he creates this amazing music by crafting layer upon layer to where he can turn his guitar into a full ethereal orchestra of bliss. And he does this in real time! It is mesmerizing to see him play.

about

Perry Frank started to record Soundscape Box in May 2013, when he began to work on his project RUINS and REGRETS.
The project is a “video-documentary-clip” about all the abandoned villages of the mining past around the town of Iglesias in Sardinia.
The songs RUINS and REGRETS open and close the album.

Perry Frank used his Fender Stratocaster guitar and a Jaguar with some gears such as POG2, MemoryMan of Electroharmonix, FLASHBACK X4 Delay of TC Electronic, and DD20 of Roland Boss, with other effect pedals and an Orange Amplifier in all the tracks of Soundscape Box I.

THE DAWNING was written and completed in June 2013, even if the song in an embryonal version was played live since January 2013.
The acoustic part was played in June 2013 with slide guitar overdubs and combined with the other soundscape parts.

BARCELONA LANDSCAPE was written in December 2013, during a trip in Barcelona.
The idea of the song came when Perry was at Montjuic Castle, where there's an amazing view of all the city.
It consists in two arpeggiated melodies played in the same time by a Fender Jaguar and a Stratocaster, over a soundscape of POG2 with some MicroKorg and piano notes.

ENDLESS SHORELINE is an experiment made with the AM Radio white noise mixed with some acoustic chords and slide melodies.
The song was written in March 2014 and completed with the soundscapes and the cicadas sounds in May 2014.

ETERNITE' PAR LES ASTRES was written during the first part of the work for Ruins + Regrets video-documentary-clip, but soon became something different.
The title of the song is taken from Louis Auguste Blanqui's masterpiece: L'Eternité par les Astres.
In his work, Blanqui analyzes the possibility of the existence of infinite parallel dimensions that necessarily lead to the idea of an infinite number of our doubles that repeat or vary our actions everyday.
The song features some guitar soundscapes over a background of Microkorg and some Keyboards sounds.
The main theme is played on a stratocaster guitar with an Ebow.

LE VENT ET LES NUAGES, is a simply ambient song that features POG2 soundscapes and ambient swells over piano notes and slide guitar melodies.
The song is slow and light as a breeze in a summer day.

The closing track of the album is REGRETS, that brings the listener back to the begininng theme, played in a more delicate way, without Microkorg, just guitar ambient swells and piano notes.

All the ambience and nature sounds where recorded with a ZOOM H2n in June 2014.
