Re: Sort of OT: Bjork's new cd MEDULLA... and looping?
Talking about Björk, I´m quite sure the acapella version of "All is full of
love" off her "Homogenic" album is done entirely with a looper of some kind
like Jamman or Plex.
Blixa Bargeld of Einstürzende Neubauten is also credited as using a Jamman
on the last Neubauten albums. To my knowledge he even does lecture trips
where his spoken word performances get some serious live-looping
