open loop continues into its second loop, er, month of continuous looping continuity. (many thanks to all the performers and audience members!) open loop is live electronic looping of live and electronic instruments. open loop is every Saturday afternoon from 1pm to 7pm at Chama, 332 east 4th street, between c & d, New York City. http://loopNY.com This week, we have some timeslots pre-arranged for performers, but we loop continuously (did I mention that?) all afternoon. 1pm: Tobi Joi 2pm: Tom Ritchford 3pm: Stv Jns 5pm: David Beardsley Tobi Joi is a Swiss multi-instrumentalist and looper with a ragged edge and some silliness. This week, he's featuring his home-made Alp-horn passed through an Echoplex Digital Pro. Tom Ritchford is me and you all know too much about me. Stv Jns is the guiding light and spirit behind Chama and Gargoyle Mechanique and will loop and reverse and distort his voice and guitar and perhaps various other gizmos. David Beardsley is the notorious microtonalist, soon to play with fabled Robert Rich at the Knitting Factory. He's premiering a new piece, Raga TNK. See you there! /t -- http://loopNY.com ......................An "open loop": shows every Saturday! http://whatGoes.com/submit .......................... submit to the calendar.
