While most loop concerts, festivals, and tours had to be cancelled due to the global pandemic, we are still looking forward to October 2020 and the 20th anniversary of the Santa Cruz based International Livelooping Festival. Should the situation not improve substantially until then, it might get postponed until 2021 – more time to look forward to it.
Guitarist Dan Phelps has started a new video series called “On Looping” where he digs into the techniques and concepts he developed in over 20 years of looping experimentation, mainly focusing on the new Blooper pedal:
NOundo is the powerful livelooping software that Emmanuel Reveneau uses for his utterly amazing ‘Lucid Brain Integrative Project’ music.
Available since 2018, NOundo is a modular multi-input live looping software dedicated to composition and orchestration in real time, developed in Usine Hollyhock by two musicians for musicians. Designed above all for live performance, flexible and open, its simple rules, original architecture and a set of discreetly automated procedures make NOundo a kind of universal machine tape capable of responding to an infinite number of musical situations, from the most conventional to the most sophisticated, with maximum freedom and cognitive comfort.
Andre LaFosse steps out of his comfort zone, surveys the newer generation of granular micro-loop gear – the Hexe Revolver, Montreal Assembly Count to Five, Red Panda Tensor, Chase Bliss Mood & Blooper, etc. – and tries to access that sound world using the EDP.

Dean G. Wolfe created a series of Boomerang tutorial videos. “I love this pedal but it’s not an easy one to learn to use. So here will be posted various short videos explaining how to set up and use certain functions to get the most out of your investment.”
Michael Klobuchar comments, “i’ve been a RANG ABUSER forever and do not claim to know everything about the RANG III…..DEAN did a wonderful job on this project and i picked up some new ideas…..hopefully he will do a series of vids using the sidecar, which imho makes the RANG a true MONSTER…..THANK YOU DEAN!!!!!”
