Once upon a time, long ago, before even THE AMBiENT PiNG was born, Planet Of The Loops achieved earth orbit and colourful sonic auroras began to fill the night skies of Toronto on a regular basis. Founded and led by Andrew Aldridge, the rotating crew of loopers from the Planet spun hours of delicious looping improvisations and always with large helpings of ambience. A migration from the Planet to the PiNG was a natural flow and all the earliest PiNG performers were Planetary Crew. The PiNG (then weekly) soon began hosting Planet Of The Loops on a monthly basis and our orbital paths were entwined for many years. For the THE AMBiENT PING's 20th Anniversary show, we've invited the Planet back for a night of looping improvisations with a veteran POTL crew selected from the PiNG's 1st year of performances. Here's your looping lineup: Andrew Aldridge - guitar Wally Jericho (1st artist to play the PiNG - Aug. 17th, 1999) - trumpet Steven Sauvé - laptop Cheryl O - cello Scott M2 - modular synth Jamie Todd - electronics https://www.facebook.com/Planet-of-the-Loops-148571225184467 https://planetoftheloops.blogspot.com - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - COMiNG SOON: THE PiNG: ..
