Multi-instrumentalist and looping performer Russick Smith will discuss a variety of aspects of live looping. Starting from the ground up, the class discuss the technical details of setting up a system for looping, whether in a basic single instrument or more complex multiple instrument arrangement. The group will then dive into the aspects of looping performance such as techniques for building rhythms and textures, layering multiple instruments, keeping looping performances interesting, and working through mistakes in front of an audience. Participants are encouraged to bring their own instruments and loopers and will also be able to experiment with Smith’s personal looping setup.
