With each successive solo release, guitar loop prodigy Dustin Wong has expanded the definition of what can be done with one guitar, a few pedals, and a restless imagination. His newest, most focused solo release, Mediation of Ecstatic Energy, was released by Thrill Jockey last week. He’s got a “colorfully abstract video” for the track “Speed Feathers Staring,” which was made by Dustin in his current home of Tokyo. Check it out below:
