Tosin Abasi Featured as “Air Shredder” in Newly Released ‘Bill & Ted Face The Music’
Animals as Leaders guitarist Tosin Abasi is featured as an “air shredder” in the brand new released Bill & Ted Face The Music. Both he and Javier Reyes, another member from Animal as Leaders have also both contributed to the soundtrack of the movie as well. ‘Bill and Ted Face The Music’ is out now in theaters and all on-demand streaming platforms including YouTube and iTunes.
Tonsin Abasi’s guitar licks are provided for any time the main characters Theodore “Ted” Logan(Keanu Reeves) and Bill S. Preston(Alex Winter) do their iconic “air guitar” moments throughout the movie. In previous Bill & Ted movies, legendary guitarist Steve Vai was responsible for writing all the licks for the scenes.
The movie’s Music Supervisor, Jonathan Leahy stated “Getting the right guitarist to handle Bill & Ted’s air shredding was one of my top priorities from the very beginning. The director asked me “what does shredding sound like in 2020?” and my answer was “it sounds like Tosin Abasi.” Tosin’s virtuosity is mind-blowing and he leads the vanguard of modern players who push the limits of what’s capable on electric guitar. Everything about his approach, from the compositions to the techniques to the physical instrument itself, seems like it arrived via time machine from the future.”
Bill & Ted Face The Music Official Soundtrack has been released through 10K projects, a Los Angeles-based independent label. The movie was directed by Dean Parisot and written by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson. Watch the trailer for it below:
