I allways felt a bit sad that
although live looping makes playing solo easier, it might also cause
people to stay alone.
One of the main reason to build the LOOP delay
(which turned into the EDP) was the BrotherSync feature.
I did the
first session with it in '92 with David Hopkins.
But before I had great
times to play with others into the same delay machine.
Some of the best
recordings are onhttp://matthias.grob.org/pMusic/CDsE.htm
intense duos have been with percussionists: Giba, Bira,
The first festival I participated was Loopstock. I
looked for someone to bring me there and Jon Wagner offered some
space in his overloaded fantastic old Volvo, next to all his drums. When I
heard he was druming, I asked to play together, so we met a few days
before and figured it out and it worked.
And I started this week
to edit the video! (learning...)
I will tell you when I upload
And at Y2k7 I invited Arild Andersen to play with me - which
was a bit heavy for me (sync did not work), but still fun!
And today I talked with Per and he suggested to bring up
this social subject more, and I said: can you point me at videos of duo
recordings, with at least two players using loops most of the time?
He could not. I met very few

since Os does the looping)
Mich Gerber: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bA1srd_bczs
professionally with a band, but just him looping)
Rick, Per and Pellef:
to be social here is great, to meet at festivals is even better, but
the best is to do it together!!

How many of you loop with an ensemble? Could you get in
