Guitar loop master Dustin Wong has announced a new studio album, Meditation of Ecstatic Energy. The LP — the first he’s recorded since moving back to his childhood homeland of Japan —  finds Wong continuing to refine his trademark brand of loop-pedal atmospherics; exploring themes of spirituality, youth, and technology, the album also functions as the final installment of a trilogy, following 2010’s Infinite Love and 2012’s Dreams Say, View, Create, Shadow Leads.

According to a press release, Meditation of Ecstatic Energy is the most intricate and progressive-minded album of Wong’s career, using “syncopation, abnormal time signatures, and polyrhythm to create an overwhelming feeling of weightlessness.” No firm release date has been announced at this time.

In September, Wong will embark on a U.S. tour. Dates are below:
