Engines of Creation is the eighth studio album by guitarist Joe Satriani, released on March 14, 2000 through Epic Records. The album is a unique and notable departure from Satriani's usual style in that it mainly features experimentation with electronic and techno music, rather than the straightforward instrumental rock heard on his previous albums. With the exception of "Until We Say Goodbye" (which received a nomination for Best Rock Instrumental Performance at the 2001 Grammy Awards), all tracks were made using guitars recorded and mixed untraditionally on computer platforms, as well as being digitally manipulated using synthesizers and computer software.
A supplemental EP, Additional Creations, was released free of charge alongside Engines of Creation in the United States. It was acquired by asking vendors for it specifically, and remains a collector's item to this day.
