I have no idea
what the picture is representing but I am lulled by your flute into not caring. Thanks, Vic.

I have no idea either. Something with electricity. Glad you liked it.

Loopy!
I remember doing something like this in the early 80's with a reel to reel, a mic stand with the tape wrapped around it, and a bit of masking tape over the erase head of the recorder. I hope your experience was more streamlined.
Very hypnotic.

Technology
yes, things are a bit easier these days. Masking tape over the erase head. Creative!

The loopmaster!
Sounding really great, mate! The few imperfections in the 16th note runs actually sound really cool, they enhance the bubbling effect of the line. Really relaxing stuff, thanks for the tuneage!

imperfections
I need more practice.... And with this looping stuff you can undo only the first pass. After that you're committed to what you've played. Living on the cutting edge of performance. You also have to think rather hard. If you wait more than a couple of seconds to have the next idea, then the repeititions get boring.

It's fun.

Does the Boss unit process the signal (effects of any kind)? This has a wonderful mellotron vibe. I know the classic mellotron attempts to emulate the acoustic instruments you excel with. So I apologize if it's a rather back-handed compliment. But as a student of late 60s and early 70s rock music, I love that sound and I'm really impressed by the means in which you've achieved it!

You develop some wonderful phrases and harmonies in this! Well done!

mellotron
Interesting.

No, the Boss unit is completely straight. I put just a touch of Logic's Spreader plugin over the mix, because I had forgotten to record to a stereo track as I intended to. Other than that, it's just flutes. It does give a phasing effect to the flutes, doesn't it?

I dig today's loop more than Thursday's loop. What a great tool you have there in that Boss. I may have to put it on my wish list. Thanks for posting.

A really nice ambient piece here Vic. Your pipe work as always is excellent, good job

flock of flutes
There seems to be a slight avian feel to this, piping and chirping, beauty and melancholy flying and perching in my mind. Mesmerizing. It strikes me as an intriguing puzzle to write music scores that harmonize by looping back on themselves. I've been told that JS Bach wrote some of his organ music expecting it to be played such that the cathedral reverberations would return and add harmony/overlays, so you need that reverb to completely appreciate some of his works.

Mesmerizing. Even more so that you did it in one take. There was a conversation of melodic lines, most pleasurable.

Timeless quality
I got a bit of a JS Bach vibe out of this too. The repetitive motifs are the single instrument layering on itself gives the piece a timeless quality. Enjoyed. Take care, Peter.
