Circuline is excited to continue announcing the Guest Guitarists for the second album, “Counterpoint”.
Guest #3: Alek Darson (Fright Pig, Meridian Voice Project). Circuline co-leaders Darin Brannon and Andrew Colyer saw Alek perform for the first time with Fright Pig at the 2014 Rites of Spring festival (RoSfest). RoSfest is a 10-band progressive rock weekend, which is a lot to take in at one time. Alek was so awesome that he stood out among the crowd. Darin and Andrew remembered him. Later that year, in October at the 2014 New Jersey Proghouse Homecoming, Darin and Andrew saw Alek onstage again, performing a rock-jazz fusion show with Meridian Voice Project. They connected that weekend, and when Circuline needed guest guitar players for this upcoming album, they called Alek.
What many people don’t know about Alek is that not only is he a virtuosos guitar player, but also a highly trained recording and mixing engineer who has produced over 12 albums. Originally from Serbia, Alek went to school for audio engineering and worked for many years running his own studio, before coming to the U.S. and attending Berklee School of Music for performance and composition.
Alek is contributing guitar tracks to the songs “Forbidden Planet”, “Hollow”, and is the mixing engineer for the album. We’re excited and grateful to be working with him!
