Emma Ruth Rundle (born on October 10, 1983, in Los Angeles, CA, United States), guitarist in Red Sparowes and vocalist/guitarist in Marriages and The Nocturnes announces the release of her solo debut recording, Electric Guitar: One. The album is a collection of guitar-based ambient pieces improvised and recorded over the course of 6 weeks while on tour with Red Sparowes in Europe in late 2010.
The 30-minute album ebbs and flows as one continuous piece of music moving through six passages of textures, drones and melodies that rise, repeat and fade back into the ongoing haze. Akin to the stark emotional impact of threadbare guitar in Neil Young's stunning Dead Man soundtrack, Electric Guitar 1 maintains a similar intensity led by creative voicing of guitar run through minimal effects. Rundle recorded the entire album while traveling in the tour van. Much of the scenery passing outside helped shape the mood, as seemingly endless hours unable to move one's body while it is hurtled across grandiose landscapes helped define the music's sense of motion without easily discernible rhythms.
