RE: Re: Recordings..turns into loops with variation
Hi, thanks for the input on 'treated' loops. Yesterday night I recorded a
prepared loop parallel on three different tracks and just moving the faders
around created some eerie minimalistic motion...
I'm just listening to a recording called 'Tango & Company' (on
JazzHausMusik / North County) by Henning Berg (tb) & John Taylor (p). They
are doing improvisations with an interactive computer program by Henning
that is being fed by mike-to-midi and a midi grand piano. They can make
'tango' (as it is called) respond to their input in differnet ways (it can
build loops!) and playback stuff via midi/synths etc.
BTW, I heard (trombonist) George Lewis is developing things in a similar
direction - anyone knows more?
P.S.: other current listening: Louis Sclavis Acoustic Quartet, Irvine
Arditti Recital for Violin (Solo, has some Fernyhough on it - thanks for
the hint from here sometime ago)
P.P.S.: I am currently reading things about Africa, just finished T.
Coraghessan Boyle (from LA) 'Water Music'. A quite pessimistic rewriting of
diarys by an original English researcher/discoverer/stupid kid, quite good.
SInce I travelled (and performed) quite a bit in Western Africa it stirrs
up a lot of memories and definetely influences my playing, but not in a
direct A-B fashion. I'm not polishing my 'Highlife' guitar licks (hey, but
maybe I should?)
