Welcome to the LiveLooping site!

You will find details of many looping musicians from around the world, both famous and unknown.

The first Providence Livelooping Festival needs your support

The Providence Y2K16 International Live Looping Festival will be a three day event starting on Friday, September 30th, 2016 at AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island. Over 30 local, national, and international live looping artists will be creating music in multiple genres for all audiences, all ages. We are raising money to launch the festival, support the artists’ stay in our city, and take Providence one step further in creating a vibrant arts community with an international presence.

Looper’s Delight started 20 years ago

LOOPY5a
The Looper’s Delight mailing list, main communication channel of the livelooping community (well, maybe until the Facebook group took over to some extent) was launched by the late Kim Flint 20 years ago (on September 1st, 1996).

Kim Flint created not only the mailing list, but also a Looper’s Delight website. After he left us, the website was unfortunately no longer accessible for the community, and hasn’t changed since. We eventually started Livelooping.org, this page, as a new web home for all liveloopers.

The old mailing list is still alive and useful however. Follow these instructions if you want to join.

Hotone Skyline WALLY Looper

A veritable miracle of modern, guitaristic science–a full-featured, great sounding looper that’s the size of a hot-wheels car! 15 minutes of loop time, the ability to speed up or slow down the loop and change the pitch by up to an octave, undo/redo, and separate record and output levels. Everything you need for live looping, practice and composing.
