Re: The importance of accidents in music.



I am ALL about using looping to help both create and manipulate "happy accidents" in music. I love manipulating my gear and coming up with interesting sounds that I know were just by change, but I got them in the looper and then I use them. In the link below for example, I used an Infernal Noise Machine analog noise synthesizer, with a Moog voltage controlling pedal and a Moog Etherwave Theremin plus as a voltage controller. The audio output went through my Booomerang w/ Side Car, and I was looping like mad with all 4 tracks; adding, stacking, deleting, reversing... over and over again while I was at the same time changing the parameters on the voltage controls. What I ended up with was an extremely complicated and nasty palate of noise that keeps changing and changing. If you're into avant-garde noise, or want to hear some truly wacked-out looping, please give this a listen. Happy accidents.... I am a big fan.

any thoughts?
I really enjoy the groove of glass shattering and children screaming, starting around 3:00...

I also would like to question Per's statement starting around 16:20: if I take a two-handed broadsword and ram it through a PPG Wave 2.3 it's rubbish, but if I ram it through a Zither it's useable "because of the laws of physics and tradition"?
