What's What?

What is live looping?  Live looping is artists using hardware/software technologies to instantly record and playback sound.  Born from the experimental efforts of early pioneers with magnetic tape and sound recording devices, "Loopers" have expanded into every music genre and into performance art. What I have assembled at this festival are performers who are passionate and serious about their music and their technology.  They are there for you to enjoy and appreciate.  Support them, buy a recording, make a donation below.  We hope you'll come on board and see how incredible looping is.
