Ron Jarzombek, guitar maniac behind the likes of WatchTower, Spastic Ink, and Blotted Science, recently answered reader questions on at Reddit. Inquiries covered topics from the history of progressive music, to playing and recording techniques to twelve-tone composition:
I don’t follow any of the rules like “you can’t play a note twice until you’ve played every other note in the row”, using a matrix, retrograde, inversion retrograde, etc… I don’t do any of that. The 12 tones/notes are there for all of us to do whatever we want with them. End of story.
Read it all are Reddit.
