Laptop Mix Rehearsal

3-layer mash-up ‘rehearsals’ for laptop live sets. A theme is sought by ‘crate’ organization and then these ‘rehearsal mixes’ are later referenced for live dubs with second player (not included here). Currently  three tracks of five (coming later).

Two ‘Master Track Player’ Index Pages Added

Collected my various ‘Avant Garde Mash Ups’ and Loopy C ‘Plays’ tracks together as consolidated sources/pages:


Avant Garde Mash-Ups Master Track Player Index


Loopy C ‘Plays’ Master Track Player Index


(also visible to right in ‘sidebar’ under ‘Pages’)


These are rebuilds of pages from my former blog (at blogger), I will slowly be updating the accompanying info but for now all the track player links should be active for ‘Discover/Encounter’ sessions 🙂

Also note that the page of ‘Master Players’ allows access to EVERY track on this site, (whether it currently has it’s own dedicated post or not):

‘Numbers’ (Loopy V VS. The Conet Project)

For? Trent Reznor (and Inspector 19), an hour-plus ‘romp’ into NIN/Peter Gabriel/Russell Mills territory via ‘Loopy C’ drums, bass, and keys mixed with ‘Numbers’ stations (ala the ‘Conet Project’).

Cookshop Collages (for ‘doru649’)

The Cookshop

One dark and stormy audio kitchen evening…to simmer, mix…perchance to steam?


A dream of auditory collisions and conceptual ‘fragra’ [sic]. For my far and away music blog friend ‘doru649’:

Loopy C ‘Listening Lounge’ Part 2

Taken from one of my live ‘avant garde mash-up’ performances I have described elsewhere dated 110606. A board mix ‘trio’ of three different but simultaneous and continously changing performances (playlists) by my fav’s in this genre. My ‘take’ on the idea of Zappa’s ‘Strange Synchronization’ or ‘Weird Xenocrony‘ (Zappa coined the phrase “xenocrony,” which was the merging of music from two different sources to create a new, third piece)

Laminal Improv Trio

If I may quote myself from another forum for reference to this ‘technique’:

‘I meant to answer your question-that set up I describe is one possible configuration of what I call the ‘Metaphysical Multitrack’. it is a variation on Zappa’s ‘xenocrony’Jeff Noone’s ‘Cobralingus Engine/Metamorphiction Process’ and the overall traditions of collage, bricolage, culture jamming, turntablism, etc (=Audiolage?), to create live, unique performances from concrete sources.

I produce ‘solo’ tracks of my own creation in different catagories (Rhythmic, Texture, Nature/Organic, Historical, Narrative, Solos, Antiqued, etc), completely in isolation from each other but with key/tempo strategies that allow them to be randomly combined with a certain amount of mindfulness. These are then loaded up in various ‘players’ (unlocked from any clock or grid) and freely combined in realtime with other performer’s material. ‘Borrowed’ sources are also added, so there is a mix of original and non-original material. Also present are various realtime manipulators and instruments so that both old and new strategies of improvisation can be accessed.

Mash-up as composition…keeping yourself surprised even when you created the source material in a more ‘logical, left-brain’ mode. Plus it allows me to listen to the mountain of music I have in my library while creating my own! ?

Steve Tibbets described it as, ‘It’s like designing furniture by throwing pieces of wood in a dark room and the end of the week flipping on the light and seeing if there is anything you can sit on’
