What is a Looper?
Looping is the art of layering sound materials (i.e. samples, live intruments, vocal percussion and singing) on top of each other to create a complete composition. A live looper is one who builds songs or sonic atmosphere in the moment using looping technology.
Loopers you may have heard of: Reggie Watts, Dub FX, Imogen Heap, Andrew Bird
Looping, Music, and Theatre
Brian was introduced to foot pedal looping technology in the summer of 2009. But since the advent of iOS software that allows looping technology on iPhones and iPads, Brian has mastered digital looping, its fusion with multi-instrumentalism (one-man-band-style looping), and translating this art form to the stage.
Brian has been commissioned by Seattle Repertory Theater to compose a new live-looped musical with playwright Hansol Jung.
Brian live-loops his one man show WHERE DID WE SIT ON THE BUS? and is the Looper in the Hip Hop duo THE FANTASTIC BOOM along with Idris Goodwin.
