UK gigs 2008 Loopfest Norwich
2008 Norwich Festival of Live Looping 2 events
Saturday October 11, 1PM Norwich Arts Centre Bar,FREE
LiveLooping music is a way of extending your musical possibilities
without resorting to the use of pre-recorded material. Sounds can be
layered, altered, mixed and edited as the music is performed.
Each artist presented here this afternoon has been able to develop their
own unique style of music, so it's not only an ideal opportunity to see
live looping in action, but also just an afternoon of great music.
Per Boysen from Sweden plays alto flute and EWI. Per's control of his
looped sounds is second to none, allowing him to create complex
accompaniments from just short flute phrases. The EWI is an Electronic
Wind Instrument, which can be played like a sax, but sound like any
instrument Per imagines. Per's quirky arrangements are guaranteed to
delight and intrigue.
Steve Bingham, a solo violinist with a successful career in classical
music who also finds time to loop his violin, creating an eclectic mix
of classical, folk and minimalism, with some gorgeous arrangements of
well known songs thrown in for fun.
Steve Lawson is a solo bass guitarist, using real time looping to layer
up processed bass sounds to build an orchestral soundscape that blends
jazz, ambient, electronica, funk and folk music.
Lobelia's acapella voice sings us songs of love and loss, blending
hook-laden adult pop with a more spacial ambient sensibility. Expect
angelic choirs and witty observation.
andy butler uses special guitar techniques to create drum beats, dub
bass lines, orchestral washes and all manner of sounds, combining them
together into a seamless mix with some unexpected twists and turns.
