"[20 Quarter Inch Jacks] is a guitarist's fantasy... Richly textured and intriguing, like a huge maze of sound caves." Down Beat
Known for staggering technical skill, expressive dramatic structures and radiant arrangements, the Canadian axeman and composer leads a large electric guitar ensemble in the American debut of the thundering suite 20 Quarter Inch Jacks. Brady, who has crafted an original and distinctive voice for electric guitar in chamber and orchestral music, electroacoustic works, operas, dance scores and improvisations, also plays a set of solo pieces augmented with loopers, delays and electronics: GO [guitar obsession], Invention #8, Frame 24: 57 Ways of Playing Guitar, Frame 20: Switch, and Memory Riot. Named Composer of the Year in 2004 by the Conseil québécois de la musique, Brady has released more than a dozen recordings. His most recent orchestral commissions are from the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra New Music Festival and the CBC Radio Orchestra.
