Today’s theme.. appears to be loopers. Late last year, I was really into loopers. I was working on a little solo project, that was absolutely fun and liberating. I was really inspired by the ambient artists out there – the biggest name that comes to mind is Andy Othling. He truly is a master of developing an interesting/mesmerizing sound scape. Recently, I started following Mylets. I like to call this ‘next level’ looping. Mylets is absolutely amazing at what he does. As well as playing loops with his guitar, he also includes a drum machine as well as vocals. His loops are fast paced, and watching him run the pedal board.. is pretty impressive to say the least. His looper is a Line 6 M9 (also has a Digitech Hardwire DL-8 Delay/Looper – but I think the loops are primarily built using the M9).
Check this video out (submitted by El Cheapo) of Mylets playing Retcon live at the Media Club:
What do you think?!?! Little King Crimson influence me thinks. If you thought that vid was cool.. follow Mylets on Facebook! Awesome stuff.
