about

Fallujah, gITAr's outspoken response to the war on terrorism has been a work in progress since 2008.
It started as a live performance and slowly morphed into a fully edited audio collage album at the beginning of 2010.
Fallujah is the attempt to understand atrocity and terror from a distance and the phantoms that plague our everyday lives. It remembers the crowded, open air markets crumbling under the weight of bomb blasts, the fear that mother's had for their children, the fear and misunderstandings of the soldier, the attempt to ignore, justify, fight back and cry.
This album is empathetic, but claims to only attempt to understand, and to attempt to engage others in this understanding...this rebuilding.
It is a match lit in a dark room in hopes that we all might see, if just for a moment.
