I’m a big fan of Tash Sultana (below) which made me wonder if there are any similar artists but who loop/layer bass to produce one man band music, live?
I might have seen these guys here in the forum or somewhere else - who knows? Anyway, here is an example with a bass player using loops for all the non-vocal music:
Whoa that bass - 7-string? It’s gorgeous.
Damn, that’s great. Inspiring stuff. Think I’m gonna invest in some looping gear.
Oh, yeah, almost forgot: here is one of my favorite bass players, Frans Vollink, playing his tune Tapatah. You can’t really see him use any looping gear here, but he plays a chordal structure for about the first 50 seconds, and then loops it and plays a melody and a solo on top. Beautiful, in any case (just a pity the clip stops a little abruptly…)
Wow, that’s a great subtle use of the looper. Beautiful.
I wish I were better with my looper pedal. They are actually kind of tricky to get the timing right on if you don’t have a drum track going. Or it could be that my time counting just sucks
Couple more Ailia X tracks, s’good stuff
Adam Ben Ezra does some sublime stuff with his upright bass. This clip isn’t a digital loop piece but it’s a lovely introduction to his work (and his dog). He also plays with looping and drum machines.
With looper and effects.
Awesome!! And you just have got to love that dog… so cool, true to itself and in the moment
I know it’s a bit off topic, but you might enjoy this one as well:
It reminds me of JJ Cale - Clyde: “Misery loves company, and his old dog sings harmony. Tambourine tied to his tail. You can hear him moan, you can hear him wail”
Thanks @PeteP that dude is freaking awesome!
Some of my favourite music has a deceptive quality. Sounds simple but is deep and cleverly put together. Looping takes a very creative mind.
As they say; “It’s takes a lot of work to make it look that easy”.
