Watch A Master At Work With Jeff Pennachio’s Playthrough Of “Interposition”
Debut EP “Setting The Stage” Out Now!
“Setting The Stage” is the debut solo EP from New York’s Jeff Pennachio (guitarist for Design The Void), containing three instrumental tracks that are composed in the style of fantastical soundtracks, creating an intricate picture that listeners can experience now.
To indulge fans further, Pennachio has recorded a playthrough video of the single “Interposition”. In it, viewers can learn how to play the parts of the song, or simply enjoy watching a talented musician in his element.
Pennachio pays great attention to his individual compositions, weaving cinematic riffs together with layers of orchestral pieces, which finalize in an elaborate symphony suited for a feature film. Thematic presentations along with a good amount of individual moving parts are an aspect of music that Pennachio holds in high regard and wants to continue pursuing. He delves into that thought in more detail:
“This EP is an important release to me as it has really allowed me to show all fans the cinematic approach I have been looking to take towards music. While being in a metal group full time, I have a specific composition structure that I use to approach all new songs. Should this EP be a successful release, it will certainly bring clarity to wanting to compose more of this type of music for all listeners.”
A complex and vivid listening experience, Jeff Pennachio is recommended for fans of Plini, Dream Theatre and Trans Siberian Orchestra.

Jeff Pennachio comes from New York State in the USA and besides being known for his guitar playing in Design The Void, he is also releasing his own solo work.
Between 2016 and 2018 he wrote the solo material while in a cover group titled The Stay. The group did not steer in the direction so much of original music, but the inspiration was there to start composing music of this sort. He began working on the tracks as a small compilation for potential future work. After a couple of years had passed, Pennachio has finally taken the time to release this music to the public.
Pennachio writes and records all guitars, drums, bass, and orchestrations and will be continuing on composing music that takes inspiration from soundtracks. He also finds inspiration in bands such as Dream Theater, Plini, and Trans Siberian Orchestra. His debut solo EP “Setting The Stage” is due out January 22, 2021.
“You really have to admire what instrumental wizard Jeff Pennachio is doing on his new song, “Interposition”. A multi-instrumentalist that does indeed record every instrument himself (guitars, bass, drums, programming), his new solo EP Setting The Stage drops later this month… While relatively short at under 4 minutes long, the new song does a good job of offering what Jeff is all about – instrumental and progressive goodness that straddles the line between progressive rock and progressive metal with ease.” – New Fury Media
“For the music fans who love to deep dive into riveting instrumental tracks with emotion stirring guitar riffs, Jeff Pennachio has something incredible to offer you!” Yesterdaze News
“there are soaring solos and crunching riffs but lots of piano and keyboards too making this more of a progressive rock EP. Of course, it is not so easy when you only have three tracks and 13 minutes available but it promises much for the full album release which I will await with relish.” – Velvet Thunder
“a great taste of what this guy is all about. He clearly is ‘Setting The Stage’ for more to come. With this being an EP, it is just a short example of the talents of Jeff Pennachio. But it leaves you with no doubts about his ability to create quality music, this is perfectly showcased here… Jeff Pennachio is a very talented one man band. 8/10” – Rock Out Stand Out
