For his new album, world-renowned guitarist/composer and 17-time Grammy winner Pat Metheny moves from brilliant improvisations to a new technology for acoustically driven “solo ensemble” music he dubs Orchestrionics. On the record, Metheny plays on a slew of custom-made instruments controlled by solenoid switches and pneumatics. On April 19, Brazilian guitarist Lubambo joins Metheny for a special collaboration at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Guest host David Lazarus talks to Metheny about his music and his latest project.

Guest:

Pat Metheny, guitarist and composer. His new album is titled Orchestrion.
