musicianship for solo loopers? (was OT NINE INCH NAILS)
The NIN thread got me thinking about one of the drawbacks of solo
performance, which is that the visual effect tends to lack a strong
impact. As a guitarist, it's pretty easy to just sit on the stool and work
the guitar and pedals. And that's not too interesting to watch, even when
it's Fripp. It's tempting to invite other musicans, especialy
percussionists who could hang with anything I might be doing without a lot
of rehearsal, to sit in if only for the added visual impact.
So what are your thoughts regarding how you approach making your solo
looping gig more visually engaging?
