RE: Vintage archtop looping video - Warren at EM2007
Yup, that was the perpetual work-in-progress. I was coding some things at
2AM the night before (naturally), so I didn't have as much under foot
control as I usually prefer - there was more computer keyboard interaction
than usual for me. But it was appropriate for the context - many people
twisting knobs and the like.
And I think some of that resonating might have been going on through the
guitar body - fuzz and acoustic together tend to do that.
Thanks for checking it out.

Thaks, I definitely enjoyed this! The video cam's built-in compressor
sounds very good at the very beginning of the first part, I think.
Gives the overall sound, live guitar plus looped guitar drone, a
sitar-like feel :-) Like if the looped stuff were resonating
sympathetically your played notes. If course it doesn't work that
way, but that's how I hear it. BTW, was that your own custom built
Max/MSP looper in action?
