Album Notes
Electrokoustic is a contrived alternative rendering of the term electro-acoustic, which loosely defined is a genre of music that attempts to push musical instruments beyond their normal limitations. John Lewis has developed a technique for playing the guitar/synthesizer that greatly expands the guitar’s tonal palate, allowing him to create lush musical arrangements on guitar. John layers bass patches on the guitar’s two lowest strings and blends synthesizer patches with the guitar’s four higher strings. This allows him to play bass and chord arrangements that are typically only possible on a keyboard.

The CD’s rhythm section consists of the drummer and John simultaneously playing the bass, keyboard, and guitar sounds on the guitar synthesizer. With the exception of the song “Say it” -on which a second guitar part was overdubbed - all rhythm tracks were performed and recorded live in the studio.
