Re: human loop machine..

David, wow. What generous thoughts you've put down here,  thank you so very much for the feedback, it helps me to suss out what works in that situation.  I am truly happy with how this first time collaboration went down, and I'm glad to hear that you heard the variety in sound and content, as that was all by design.  I'm so sorry we didn't get to meet personally. (These large audience things are frustrating, because you never get to meet everybody you'd like, AND the attention is so divided that it's frustrating.  

I did get your record and will listen to it today! 

All the best,

Hi Todd: I was there and was able to audience wise myself close to the front. Your performance was quite something else in it's entirety. Adam (OMG), Sxip (OMG 2x), the violin ensemble (did I see an alternating viola?) and helicon tubist (who I didn't know) were excellent additions to the mix, color & collage. The overall choice of rep was aurally expansive; all of which you should be very proud. I hung around after the concert to introduce myself and say hello but you were engaged. I did drop off my cd & card with your cd sales partner-teers. Hope you got it. You may recall I had communicated with you a few months back on loopers-delight regarding our connections to the music biz (My connections being: Chicago, Hazmat Modine, Blues Clues, Spike Jones and your former violin student Tim). Carry on and knock yourself out!!  ~David

Hey y'all, 

Tried something two nights ago which I'm sure some of you have tried before, but it was super rewarding.  I had six violins with me in front of which I looped and had each one capture a track of looping on live violin, then I faded out the loop.  Worked like a charm and it was beautiful.  

However... with the size of the venue I'm afraid the crossfade got lost, let that be a lesson to me. Next show with this band, I'll not use the looper to create, but rather just the musicians!

In any case, we had a great time and someday I hope to share some looping work from this show with you all. 

I'll post a few links here to pics and a review... 

Cheers, all!
