    A Re-Imagining Of Peter Gabriel Hits With Through The Wire

    World-Renowned Musicians Release A Re-Imagining Of Peter Gabriel Hits With Through The Wire

    Featuring Tony Levin, Jerry Marotta, Pat Mastelotto, Larry Fast, Pete Levin, David Sancious, Theo Travis, David Torn, Jakko Jakszyk and others!

    A collective of over 140 acclaimed musicians across 5 continents, including bassist Tony Levin, have come together remotely to celebrate Peter Gabriel's musical legacy. Jeremy Nesse and Deane Arnold have been producing reimagined, new recordings of Gabriels songs.

    In a project prompted in part by the remote spirit of the global pandemic, the musicians have managed to collaborate from as far away as New Zealand, Europe, and Asia.

    Producer and Musician Jeremy Nesse explains, This has been a true exercise in remote, DIY collaboration and a testament to the love that we all share for Peter Gabriel, both in his artistry and his humanity. This project would not have been possible had it not been for the pandemic, the generosity of the contributing artists, and my co-producer, Deane Arnold.

    The project, which has spanned almost 2 years, will include five songs per month via Bandcamp.com. Volumes 1-3 are currently available for purchase. Volume 4 will be released on May 6th and there will be another 6 to 8 releases in 2022. A CD compilation of Through The Wire will be released late 2022.

    The interpretations will span over 40 years of Gabriels career, and will include well-known songs as well as obscure and previously unfinished tracks.

    Says Deane, This project is about the community of contributing musicians. Each song includes a different lineup of people, many of whom have never met in person. Some of us already knew each other, but most are collaborating for the first time. Working together in a creative way is the best part of being human.

    The musicians who worked on the project include current and previous members of Gabriels band: Tony Levin, Jerry Marotta, Pat Mastelotto, Larry Fast, Angie Pollock, Pete Levin, David Sancious, David Torn, Paul Richards, Donna Lewis, Elliott Sharp, Tim Bowness, Peter Chilvers, Gail Ann Dorsey, Stephan Thelen, Julie Slick, Steve Ball, Jon Durant, Theo Travis, Jakko Jakszyk, Dewa Budjana, Sidney Jake and Patrick Grant.

    Says Jeremy, Peter Gabriel kindled our love for art-rock and world music. The commingling of differing cultures and international perspectives has been a driving force in our musical journey. With the advent of the pandemic, over 100 artists, who have a shared love of PGs music, donated their time and talent to this magnificent experiment that would never have happened under normal circumstances.

    Says Deane, Weve approached some of the songs as relatively faithful tributes, while others have been more broadly reinterpreted. Certain songs should be respected for how they were born. Others have room for new perspectives. In all cases, the music has depth that can lead to unexpected results.

    The music is being mixed in Bearsville, New York by Robert Frazza of Ashokan Talent. Frazza has supported over 200 bands around the world, including Orleans, Todd Rundgren, and Peter Gabriel. He is frequently called upon to pull together international tours.

    Volumes 1-3 are currently available for purchase. Volume 4 will be released on May 6th and there will be another 6 to 8 releases in 2022. The CD version of Through The Wire will be released late 2022

    Jeremy Nesse is a NYC-based Bass & Chapman Stick instrumentalist who has contributed to projects spanning multiple genres including rock, progressive, reggae, electronic, dance-pop and hip-hop. In 2020, he had contributed Chapman Stick, NS upright and keys to Pat and Deb Mastelottos A Romantic's Guide To King Crimson

    Deane Arnold is a studio rat who has managed to mostly avoid live performances. In addition to Peter Gabriel's music, his influences range from Pete Seeger to King Crimson, and he is just as likely to find inspiration in avant-garde minimalism or progressive metal as in bubblegum pop. He is internationally known for his work as a pumpkin sculptor.

    I usually don't do repeat listens for these types of constellations but the line up is amazing and I'll definitely buy the CD when it's out.

    Brian Cummins, the guy who sings Moribund on vol. 3, is the guy who sang lead vocals on Mark Kelly's recent solo album. He's a pretty talented vocalist.

    I admire the depth of song selection here. I actually had to Google a couple of the titles. Excellent to see the inclusion of the Bowness/Chilvers track; I love Tim Bowness quite dearly. I haven't been through everything yet but the depth of the reimagining here is surprising and admirable. Honestly I wasn't that keen on the idea when I saw the thread title, but I'm more impressed than I thought I'd be, and curious about the whole thing.
