This debut album recorded in 2008 channels music for organ, classical guitars, strings, and Indonesian gamelans through electric guitars and classic vacuum tube amplifiers. The result is an extraordinary blend of art music and post-rock, achieved by eight classically trained guitarists who reclaim the electric guitar and transform a variety of art music genres.

Los Angeles Electric 8: Philip Graulty, Chelsea Green, Ben Harbert, Brandon Mayer, Andy Nathan, Marc Nimoy, Felix Salazar, JohnPaul Trotter.
