From time to time, I have performed and recorded live solo improvisations using electric guitar and a combination of processing equipment, including a digital “loop sampler” which enables me to overdub and stack instrumental parts to solo over.
This album presents almost my entire performance at a creative arts event in July 2010. A short sequence was removed from “I(iii)” as it was simply the loop playing with no input from me at all (I believe I had got up to walk around and take in the ambience, Fripp-style), but otherwise, no other edits or overdubs were made later—this is what would’ve been heard in the hall at the time.
Three loops from this performance were extracted and used as the basis for the track “Polyphon” on my 2012 album “Lifecourses”.
More to come…
