Zero Sum World


'Zero Sum World' is the second solo release from exciting guitarist/composer Ant Law. His band features four guiding lights in British contemporary music: Ivo Neame (piano), James Maddren (drums), Michael Chillingworth (reeds) and Tom Farmer (bass). Each musician turns out stellar performances on the record and are given ample room within Law's compositions to shine.

The album showcases an eclectic mish-mash of influences from around the world, but it's Law's thematic writing and playing that binds its eleven tracks together into one uniform statement. No doubt the extensive touring the band has done over the last two years comes into play, in the overall presentation and tightness of Ant's often tricky and rhythmically shifting compositions. Both Neame and Chillingworth improvise with aplomb while Maddren's considered touch flows like water through even the most complicated corners of Law's tunes. Every track features Law's guitar tuned in perfect 4ths which lends itself to unique harmony.

A resident in London since 2008, Law regularly performs with Tim Garland, Jason Rebello, Mica Paris, Gwilym Simcock, Leon Ware, Asaf Sirkis, Koby Israelite, Camille O' Sullivan and is known as a pioneer in the "perfect fourths" tuning system for guitarists. He is a published author on the subject and his book '3rd Millennium Guitar: An Introduction to Perfect 4th Tuning' was released Mel Bay Publications in 2011.

Personnel: Ant Law (guitar), Michael Chillingworth (reeds), Ivo Neame (piano), Tom Farmer (double bass), James Maddren (drum)
