Title - Particles of the Infinite
Artist - Alex Anthony Faide

For those not in the know, inspired by and developed from concepts found in songs such as King Crimson’s “Fracture” and “Lark’s Tongues in Aspic,” Alex Anthony Faide takes the work beyond the stratosphere into the mirror dimension to find something completely his own.

Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Guitarist/Composer Alex Anthony Faide has a decades-long international reputation for being the secret weapon in rock recordings, arrangements, and stage productions in Europe and Latin America.

Now based in Seattle, WA, Faide releases his long-awaited solo record – Particles of the Infinite (releasing March 18h via 7D Media) – a display of guitar pyrotechnics in nine parts. Features special guest drummers Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson), Matt Chamberlain (David Bowie) and Alessandro Inolti (Echotest).

1. Particles of the Infinite Pt. I (4:06)
2. Particles of the Infinite Pt. II (4:31)
3. Particles of the Infinite Pt. III (5:50)
4. Particles of the Infinite Pt. IV (4:37)
5. Particles of the Infinite Pt. V (11:05)
6. Particles of the Infinite Pt. VI (3:18)
7. Particles of the Infinite Pt. VII (3:38)
8. Particles of the Infinite Pt. VIII (6:28)
9. Particles of the Infinite Pt. IX (6:11)

I mean, when Robert Fripp (King Crimson) himself freely admits that Alex Anthony Faide plays my guitar parts better than I do", you know you are in for a fantastic musical experience here, and that is just what Faide copiously provides.

Opening on the first of nine (9) chapters that make up the whole musical venture entitled Particles of the Infinite, Pt. I leads us by the hand into the symphonic maze and guides us around, giving us a taste of what is to come.

Whilst Pt. II then brings us some gently fervent fare, Pt. III then brings forth a blanket of comfort within itself, whilst Pt. IV is more of a rock venture, overall.

With Faide himself also admitting that all these compositions were inspired by and developed from the work and teachings of his friend and mentor, the aforementioned Robert Fripp, sure his historical offerings can be found swathed throughout, but trust me when I say that Faide still manages each and every track to become his own venture.

Thus, the album continues on with the layered guitar work of the, at times, pulsating, nay thunderous eleven minute Pt. V and that is itself backed by the innate gossamer of Pt. VI, with this deeply reverberating recording rounding out with the free for all jam sensibilities found within both Pt. VII and Pt. VIII, coming to a close on the languishingly ornate nature of Pt. IX.
