Live in Concert: 3. International Live-Looping Festival

Live Looping in the early days: a tape was unrolled on one tape recorder and passed to another where it was played back and rolled up. The played back signal was recorded again on the first recorder, so the sound kept circulating for a while more was added

Five hours of uninterrupted live-looping music!

Livelooping is in the gap between electronic and traditional music. Depending on the point of view, LiveLooping means:

  • to automate hand played instruments or
  • to humanize electronically composed music.

The music world is roughly divided between traditional musicians who spent years to dominate an instrument and hours to rehearse a specific piece and finally record it with a microphone and electronic musicians who dominate creative computer programs and mount compositions from prerecorded and electronically generated sounds.

Matthias Grob, 2006

“A way for one person to make an awful lot of noise. Wonderful!”

Robert Fripp
