Flat Tire: Music for a Non-Existent Movie is the eleventh and final studio album by guitarist Allan Holdsworth, released on 1 December 2001 through Megazoidal Records and reissued on 16 August 2007 through Eidolon Efformation. Besides the first track, the entire album was recorded by Holdsworth himself using the SynthAxe, an instrument for which he became well known since Atavachron (1986).
Flat Tire: Music for a Non-Existent Movie. Some of the synth sounds are quite reminiscent of his 1987 album Sand. The music is a bit static and repetitive overall, particularly on tracks like "Please Hold On," "So Long," and "Don't You Know," during which single lines flutter over subtly shifting rubato harmonies. The brassy chords that surface during "The Duplicate Man" are perhaps the best example of Holdsworth's sonic creativity.

Holdsworth uses the instrument not only to play basslines, string- and choir-like chord swells, and quicksilver single-note lines, but also to trigger drum patches. The result is more of a one-man band effect than a solo guitar performance. Some of the synth sounds are quite reminiscent of his 1987 album Sand
