What you should know about Pearlvibe (OR – who has no business being on this site)
Sounds a bit provocative doesnt it?
In an age of deplorable „ugly“, a time of conforming debauchery and tastelessness – the attempt alone of capturing beauty will cofound most people like a ground mole is blinded by looking at sunlight after years of darkness. Those who see it for the first time call it „BLING“, trying to downplay something completely foreign to their eyes.
My guitars are dedicated to the search for beauty. Each one is concieved and made with this in mind and if I achieve this quest then it is not my doing. The one that created such beautiful material as Abalone, Pearl, precious woods, gems, crystals (the list goes on) is the true artist. I just put it all together. Call it art if you like – but I´m not the artist.
Then there is the tone and playability: Does anyone really want great tone today? Stupid question, you might say. Well then listen to the monotonous desensitizing Lemming jibberish being called music today and show me where great tone is even an issue. When was the last time you heard a fantastic tone that caught your ear and gave you goosebumps? When was the last time you heard a beautiful melody?
In an age of audial trash a beautiful tone is overlooked or even ridiculed.
In a time of lies, truth is scoffed at as being naive.
If good honest workmanship, critical thinking and dedication are to be ridiculed then the joke is on me BUT I refuse to join mindless trends and silly fads.
In a time of consuming decadence and deception by ommission honest accountability and decent principles are like a breath of fresh air.
So, if you have read this far you belong to a very small minority. Take a deep breath of fresh air! Enjoy discovering my creative process. I hope that some of the beauty I worked so hard at will touch something deep within you.
