Expanding on his trailblazing use of guitar synthesizers and modern computer technology, the 17-time Grammy-winning musician has created a new Orchestrion, an ensemble of mechanical instruments that will be controlled by his guitar and pen.
He will show off all original compositions using the new instruments that combine conventional acoustic sound and robotic technology.
Dates are being booked for the North American leg of “An Evening with Pat Metheny Tour,” which will kick off in fall 2009. In early 2010 he will head to Europe and then it’s on to the Far East and Pacific Rim.
During the tour Metheny will share tunes from his new album, set for release in the fall of 2009.
