Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of ". _ _ _ _," the new video single by guitarist Angel Vivaldi. The song is from Vivaldi's latest self-release, Away With Words Pt. 1.
And in case you're wondering, ". _ _ _ _" isn't a typo. It means "One" in Morse code.
The track showcases everything this Ibanez artist has become known for, including soaring melodies, technical phrasing and seamless song arrangements.
"I put a ton of emotion into writing/now performing this song," Vivaldi says.
"For the video, I wanted to visually capture the dynamic of artistic struggle—which most of us know well—coupled with severe mental illness. The best thing an artist can do is to paint a picture in someone's mind of what a song would 'look' and 'feel' like. We really worked hard to achieve this, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results."
Away With Words Pt. 1 was released in March following Vivaldi's Universal Language EP, which includes "A Martian Winter" and "A Mercurian Summer." Both releases are available on iTunes (opens in new tab) and Bandcamp.
