thought there was a thread for Plini already, but I suppose not.



New track released, this time it's for charity.

Plini wrote:
In 2014, I released a song called "KO KI" in order to fundraise for a volunteering trip to Cambodia led by the wonderful non-profit organisation Raw Impact. At the beginning of 2015, I went to Cambodia, to help construct a community centre for the people of Ko Ki Village. This was an unforgettable experience – everything from the joy of playing games with some of the happiest kids I've ever seen, to the overwhelming realisation that I was able to use my love of music to benefit the lives of a community that barely even has access to clean water or electricity. Recently, I read that Raw Impact was embarking on its most ambitious project yet – to prevent the forced relocation of 100 families currently living in slums outside Phnom Penh. EVERY PIECE MATTERS is about "providing land for families so we can bring safe housing, primary education for their kids, rescue from debt slavery and provide a steady job for Mum and Dad. For every $5,000AUD pledged, one family can live on their own land." After seeing the work that Raw Impact has done already, and being a part of one of their teams, there is no doubt in my mind that they can make this happen.

I really dig this one, his guitarwork never ceases to impress me, both stylistically and compositionally.

I know some people here enjoy his work, so I figured I'd share this to spread it around some more.

If you're not familiar at all with this dude (Plini began as a one-man project online), check out the footage from the Cynic Japan Tour from last year. It's stellar stuff, with a very improvisational edge to it. I'd kill to see the group he's assembled live. I'm pretty sure the rhythm section of the band in the live video is now his constant band, too. So maybe they'll do an american tour supporting some bigger names in prog-metal.

Yeah, he deserves to be one of the biggest names in progressive music right now. Thanks for the reply, Shay!

I'm wondering if he's been offered any label recognition. He seems to enjoy flying under the radar.

I discovered him through Guthrie Govan. I guess they both share the same management. Didn't know about the new single. Cool, need to check it out. I really dig Plini. He plays one of those Strandberg guitars.

Strandbergs are beautiful instruments. Really pricey, beautiful instruments, haha.

for some reason the embedding didn't work right, but if you click on it itself it will take you to guitarworld.com where the track is playable.
