Special event marks the debut of new album Triboluminescence by legendary guitarist from The Police

Los Angeles, CA — Roland and BOSS are proud to present a special up-close-and-personal evening featuring multi-GRAMMY® Award-winner Andy Summers at the GRAMMY Museum® in Los Angeles. Taking place on Thursday, March 23, 2017, the event will feature an intimate solo performance, conversation, and multimedia presentation by the legendary guitarist from The Police, who is also an award-winning songwriter, composer, and noted photographer. The evening will be live-streamed on the Roland and BOSS websites and as a Facebook Live event, which can be viewed on www.facebook.com/BOSS.

GRAMMY Foundation Vice President Scott Goldman will host a conversation with Summers and the audience about Summers’ illustrious career and new album, Triboluminescence (set for release by Flickering Shadow Productions on March 24). Summers will perform selections from the new album in addition to a presentation of never-before-seen, original photography by Summers, who will also provide a live, improvised solo guitar “soundtrack” that will accompany the presentation.

Triboluminescence is Summers’ 14th solo album, and is a collection of nine new tracks reflecting the style that he has evocatively dubbed “New Exotic.” It reflects Summers’ penchant for endless layers, rich tone, sound loops, and his love of jazz. The tracks showcase his abilities not only as a guitarist, but as a drummer and percussionist as well.

Summers, who was recently presented with the Roland and BOSS Lifetime Achievement award, reflected on the gear he used to record his new album and some that will shape his sound during his upcoming performance, noting, “Most of the drum tracks [on the new album] are on the Roland TD-20 drum kit. The beauty of it is that you can try different snare drums, different kits, you can move around, you can sort of mix it up.” For the guitar sounds, he shared, “On ‘Elephant Bird,’ we used the distortion in the Roland VG-99. It’s just a superb lead guitar sound, and I’ve used it for quite a while now. We just never seem to be able to beat it; it’s a very nice, slight overdrive sustain; it’s got elegance to it. The first track, ‘If Anything,’ for instance, has got this soaring guitar like a soprano singer. Whenever I want to play that kind of liquid lead style, that’s the sound I almost always go for.” A longtime BOSS pedal user, he says, “I used a classic one from the ‘80s called VB-2 [Vibrato], a CS-1 Compressor Sustainer, and I have the new Waza Craft CE-2W Chorus.”
