Scarf 21:51


Bill MacKay’s composition Scarf, originally only available on a limited-edition cassette of 50 copies back in 2019, has now reemerged. The song is nearly 22 minutes of solo electric guitar, driving forward through varied melodic themes, noise, drone, raga, rock n roll, and a carnivalesque closing-section. The cover art is also Bill’s and reflects some of his feelings about the piece, principally among them: the idea of illumination.

Performed & Recorded by Bill MacKay on November 24th, 2018 at The Hideout, Chicago.
Composition & Cover Art by Bill MacKay.
Mastered by John Daniel.
