Here's one we seem to have forgotten:
Bill Frisell. Bill has used short spontaneous loops as
ambiance in a live setting for years. I believe he uses
a custom device with 16 seconds of infinite delay. During
a piece he samples a bit of something, speeds it up, slows
it down, and mangles it. Then, he'll fade in the loop at
some opportune time in the performance. There is plenty
of this on his album _Power Tools_. He shares that drunken,
warped sound with Torn but in a different way. Bill F.
doesnt use a whammy bar, all his warping is done by bending
the neck as he plays. He's got killer jazz chops too.
