The Sonic Experiment: Part 2

Andrew Aged shares his view of the guitar as a conduit for expression.

Note: This is the second installment of a three-part video series called “Yamaha Revstar: Meet Your Other Half.”

In this video, Andrew Aged of the band “Inc. No World” gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse into his life, his home and his studio. He also shares his memories of the beginning part of his journey. “As a kid I saw a guitar in a music store and I just had to have it,” he recalls. “I asked my dad and he got it for me, and literally since the moment I got it I’ve never stopped.”

Recently, Aged started playing a custom Yamaha Revstar. His thoughts? “This guitar is responsive and precise, which I really like. It’s like driving a faster car than I’m used to!”

Like most musicians, Aged has his reflective side too. “I prefer to communicate musically because it’s abstract,” he says. “Words get in the way, no matter how hard we all try.”

“The thing about the guitar,” he adds, “is that it kind of removes a certain part of the intellect in the mind, at least the way I hope to play – it’s coming from the heart and there’s a sincerity about it.”

Aged concludes with a word of advice for up-and-coming guitarists: “You’ve got to put in the work; you’ve got to put in the time and the energy – then you’re able to get out of the way.”
