Guitarist Andre LaFosse and percussionist Jon Wagner bring their 
approaches to live electronic music to Oaktown. Both artists use electric 
and acoustic instruments along with electronic processing equipment to 
create "loops" of repeating music which evolve over time. Andre has 
recently released a new solo album "Normalized" that will be available for 
sale at this show. They will each do a solo set and then join together as 

The Artists:

Andre LaFosse
Guitarist Andre LaFosse has been looping exclusively with the Gibson 
Digital Pro for eight years, and in that time has built a reputation as
one of the more iconoclastic and unusual practitioners of the craft.
Flying in the face of ambient soundscape music, Andre's self-described
"turntablist guitar" style draws influence from IDM, glitch-core,
hip-hop, and funk, for a highly dynamic, aggressive, and
rhythmically-based approach.  He is also the creator of the Echoplex
Analysis Pages, arguably the first web site to offer annotated musical
examples of real-time looping, which has drawn thousands of visitors
since its inception in 2002.  For information and sound samples, visit 

Jon Wagner
Percussionist Jon Wagner is a professional drummer in the San Francisco 
Area. He usually plays jazz, but also spends quite some time with 
percussion and real-time electronic processing. Jon values improvisation 
a center to his musical focus and has been interested in the concept of 
live looping for several years now. Jon is using a Gibson Echoplex Digital 
Pro and an Electrix Repeater to sample his playing live and recall those 
loops. This allows him to improvise solo or as part of a group within (and 
outside) many different genres.
