Please feel free to download these
mp3s of some of my loop music. The live recordings are
mostly versions of the pieces on my cd. Usually I record direct from the mixing
desk, that's why there's not much crowd noise.

A complete unedited performance from the
Y2K5 Festival of Looping at Santa Cruz,
Listen to the whole set as streaming mp3s, or here's some
of the tracks as individual files:-
Rag Kasaundi(6M), not a genuine raga at all.
Aquarium No.2(8.6M), glitchy improvised piece, quite
unlike anything else you heard from me.
Hanging Garden(5.4M), composition using the echoplexes
as if they were a multitrack studio.
Mill with Slowly Revolving and Falling Marbles(4M),
gentle piece with some unlikely guitar tones.

Backwater(3.4M), this starts as
an ambient piece, but 1 minute into it the background loop
is broken up and transformed into a sequencer type rhythm.
Sounds like hours of editing, but actually all live. This is
the first track from the new cd.
Excerpt from my set at the 2004 Cambridge
Festival of Looping. Unfortunately the only audio
available for this one was from a mic on a video cam, hence
the mono-lo-fi with background noise.
the rhythm is generated by building up a loop of fragments
of guitar chords, eventually nothing here sounds like a
a home recording, as I play I bring in loops that I'd just
recorded (live you'd see/hear them being made). The solid
electro-drum beat running through this track was played on
guitar modified through a cheap multiprocessor.
There's also some excerpts from the
livelooping cd which you can listen to on the CD
