First Artist Named
Sylvia Massy is a US-based engineer and producer with over 30 years of studio experience, who has worked with acts including Johnny Cash, REM and Tool. She’ll be sharing her insights and processes for producing successful records using experimental engineering methods and equipment. Mexican duo Sotomayor will share the art of sampling, along with giving a full band performance of their perfect blend of live instrumentation and digitally produced beats. UK-based quartet Ex-Easter Island Head will host a Music Improv Session-based around their instruments-as-percussion approach to performance, along with a Studio Session showing some of the techniques they use to create unique sounds through the art of repetition.
Loop 2020 will also feature artists using off-grid methods in their art. Be it through the unorthodox vocal performance happenings of Colin Self, or through the intensely physical practise of virtuoso percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie. Antenes and Eric Pitra, both instrument builders based in New York, will also be contributing, along with pioneering acts Deena Abdelwahed, Joel Holmes, and Cody Currie.
