Loops, Loops, Loops!

Hi lovelies.  So everyone knows that I’m crazy about looping.  I think it’s the most fun one can have outside of hog rasslin’ and whittlin’.  So I thought I’d post a couple of the latest vids in case you haven’t seen them.  Why?  Because I like sharing.  Why else?  Cause I’m in desperate need of your approval.  But seriously, we’re gearing up to do a nice little tutorial video on looping and using the Looperlative, which is the most amazing looper in the universe. Designed and built by one of the coolest and nicest people in the known universe as well.  Do you know what that means?  It means that looping has never been nicer, or more amazing.

So enjoy the videos and as always, speaking for frogs and rutabagas everywhere, I’m Lobelia.  Good day.

 

This is a new song called The Sound of a Breaking Heart.  I started the looping out on mute….which is a dangerous thing..cause not only you can’t hear what it’s going to sound like…I can’t either!!!  Also, a nice example of what happens when you get an extra beat in the loop live.  You just go with it and point upwards. 😉

 

This is a song called In, which I wrote for bass and voice when I was 19.  I’d never done it live as it needed to have tonnes of harmonies and what not to work on stage.  And only a short 249 years later Voila!  Modern technology!  


The Waiting

Hi there All! Played a really nice gig last night at The Waiting with Robert Logan.…what amazing loop-bassed ambient IDM he makes. So lovely. I’m hoping to work with him a bit in the future on some of my crazy new a capella loopy vocal goodness. Please check him out!

Here’s a pic of us from last night…being slightly rubbish but having a great time! 🙂
