Tried something two nights ago which I'm sure some of you have
tried before, but it was super rewarding. I had six violins with
me in front of which I looped and had each one capture a track of
looping on live violin, then I faded out the loop. Worked like a
charm and it was beautiful.
Hey Todd, Which musician is doing the found sound/toy music stuff.
He's the one with the really bushy gray hair.
He looks like a musician after my own heart and I'd love to contact him
and find out what he's up to.
Could you arrange an introduction for me?
By the way, the gig just looks wonderful!
I saw Laurie Anderson back in '74 or '75 at Cowell College's Thursday
night 'College Night'
Most of the audience left because it was too strange for them, but it
was a turning point in my life.
She's the first person I ever saw use pitch shifting to change the
gender of her performance character and it was electrifying....
seemed like it was heralding an new age of music (if only I had known
how wonderful and crazy it would get in the next 40 years.
She also was playing her violin with the tape recorder pickup attached
to it so that her bow was a sentence of human tape
on a piece of magnetic tape.
So damned creative. I wish I could have seen you guys play.
yours, Rick Walker
