2020 saw the release of ‘Me Ta Podia’, Burton’s first solo album. An instrumental record entirely recorded on guitar but rooted in electronic music. Not entirely content working as a
sideman, Burton started working on his own music, first as a member of Hong Kong Dong and as a composer for theatre and soundtracks, and now also as a solo artist. Feeling the need to, at least temporarily, turn his back to the obligatory rock, pop or jazz etc. and to explore other directions, he recorded ‘Me Ta Podia’ as a live performance using the guitar as a sound generator as well as a tool for composing.
