ENTRANCE Talks "Book Of Changes"

Entrance has come in many forms over the years, but Guy Blakeslee has always remained steadily at its helm. Even the band's name conjures up multiple shifting ideas and meanings, so it makes since that Blakeslee's most recent release is titled Book of Changes. That doesn't mean, however, he is trying to leap forward into a new genre of music.
Instead, Book of Changes sees Entrance going back to the very basics of music, the kind that doesn't need machines to help convey its message. At the very heart of the new album there is simply a man with a guitar singing about what touches him. In that sense it makes even more sense that the album would be named after the most classic Chinese text, the I Ching.
ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann caught up with Guy to discuss the new album, why he felt a need to step out of the current mode of computer-influenced music, and find out just what makes the artist continue to create even if only one person turns up to a show.
