Steve Vai Explains Unconventional Trilogy (A Top Story)


.
On Wednesday Steve Vai Explains Unconventional Trilogy was a top story. Here is the recap: Classic Rock Revisited caught up with Steve Vai to discuss his new album, The Story of Light, the second album in a planned trilogy. In this excerpt Steve explains the unconventional approach he took to the trilogy:

Steve: When I started Real Illusions, which was my last studio record, I wanted to do a concept record, but I didn't want to do it in the conventional way. I wondered what I could do in order to make it different. I wanted it to span a long period of time, as it is probably going to be one of my life's greatest works. I wanted to break it up into little pieces and put it out, not in a linear way.

If you listen to Real Illusions, then you will just hear a studio album, as you will not be able to put all of the pieces together. If you read the liner notes, then you can start to put little pieces together. The idea is the same with The Story of Light. It is like Real Illusions, as it is a studio album. That said, the songs are all based on characters in the story, but they are not in the right order. The third part of the trilogy, which I will do sometime in the future, will be similar.

What I would, then, like to do is to take all of the three records and put them out in a box set. I could do some new stuff to glue them all together. I would take the songs and put them in the correct order, so it would flow like a story. You would be able to actually follow the story. - He has a lot more to say including his thoughts for the final part of the trilogy
