tony martucci - looping drummer video

I was just checking through the Kennedy centre archives and came across a
chap called Tony Martucci using looping technology in a one-man percussive
performance. 55 minutes in total but only two looped tracks, viz the second
track, approx 8 minutes into the performance, and again at about 34 mins or
something of that order which is as far as I got before realaudio decided 
be come all picture and no sound.

It sounds like he's using a DL-4 or other basic looping function to create 
foundation loop, overdubbing more material and then grooving over the top.
Interesting & relevant stuff for me as a solo percussionist preparing for a
gig (my inaugural looping gig) with Rick Walker in Belfast as part of his
euroloop tour, June 13 Linenhall Library, Belfast if I may get away with a
plug. :)


You may need to cut & paste the link above to get it to work.
