My solo set at the very wonderful 20th anniversary Y2K International Livelooping Festival in Santa Cruz, California, organized by Rick Walker.

Sorry for the video quality – the main view was taken from the live stream which was great to have (thx to Bob Amstadt) but for some reason the images stuttered and didn’t run as smoothly as the sound, the other view is from a little camera in front of my feet.

The music is mostly sonically demanding (with harmonious interludes) and experimental. Listen loud if you love experimental music! I used an old Hohner GT2 guitar with a midi pickup, just an iPad as guitar processor, running virtual instruments, sound processors, and loopers (such as Loopy Pro with four unsynced loops this time, and Hainbach’s Gauss).

I made a little 30 minute video sampler about music and noise in 2021.

By the way, on this screenshot you see my very first guitar, a cheap Hopf classical guitar that I got in 1968 and that we later always referred to as ‚firewood‘. I’m hammering on it using Santoor sticks.
