Megadeth guitarist, Kiko Loureiro, has released the video below, along with the following message:
“In this Live #4, I will show you what I call THE REAL ORDER of the Modes. I will organize them in terms of feelings and moods. By understanding this, you will have the power to compose and improvise with total control over the feelings you want to express. Your solos and songs will have much more color, and more variety.”
Loureiro recently released his new album, Open Source. Get the album here, and find a full audio stream below.
A recent message from Kiko states: “By definition, ‘open source’ is related to softwares which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. It brings us a higher sense of community, enhances our creativity and creates new possibilities. So why not take this concept to our art, our music? How much richer a song could be if others had access to its source code? What if the song’s original composition wasn’t the final product? What if it was just the beginning? Something that could be constantly updated and evolve over time. And as well as a machine, we as humans are also minded to enhancements, being an open source ourselves, constantly moving and growing, through technology, science, spirituality… and art. This is the mindset which I bring now to my fifth solo album, that was named… guess what? OPEN SOURCE!”
