during my correspondence with a friend we were talking about music and film. Some names and subjects we shared got me in a creative mood, and i was wondering might there be a theme that would unite this all?

Yes: GUITARS, DRUGS & the YEAR 1969.
I tried my hand at some visual rhyming,

While the Beatles were still together,

Brian Wilson was clearing his situation with lots of medical support,

Peter Green experienced a bad LSD trip in Vienna and wrote the
‘Green Manalishi with the two Prong Crown’ while,

Jimi Hendrix and Brian Jones were losing control in their world of drugs,

and Elvis made his Comeback Special and Comeback Tour!

and there are people landing on the MOON too and,

and then…………

then there is Terry Riley making his new music and quietly influencing everybody

‘Music with Balls’ 1969

watch this beautiful piece of music and art here:
[he never played the guitar, but let’s be fair he also never made a hitsingle!]

A young David Lynch is making his first short movies and already dreaming of ‘guitar-thrills’ ………

but that’s for another story!

And remember ‘ a bargain is a bargain, no matter what the costs’ !
[Agent Dale Cooper/ The Twin Peaks Tapes]


the name i gave some years ago to a personal project concerning electro-acoustic music.

One of the songs “ELECTRIC CITY ECHO” i’m posting here today for 2 reasons: it’s a good example of the use and possibilities of LLOOPP/PPOOLL,

and it also will be part of a new project: ‘Carnet de Voyage’, but this time only hard ware [no computer/ software]. More info will follow soon.

LLOOPP/PPOOLL Tutorial Part 1

This is my one and only software tool!
I love it and I hate it, an everlasting affair.
I used it a lot, check the electric souvenir soundcloud page!

I use LLOOPP/PPOOLL [by Klaus Filip a.o.] together with GLEETCHLAB [by Giorgio Sancristoforo] and SOUNDHACK [by Tom Erbe]

If you found your way here, i assume you are in need of some info on how
to get this stuff working. That’s the reason i’m posting the tutorial.

Just some background info:

Even though I’m not using LLOOPP/PPOOLL a lot at the moment [ my orientation is analogue these days ] i must say that using this software will bring you a lot, it’s a box full of surprises, new sounds, new ideas. If it was only for this purpose [to open yourself up for new musical insights] that would be enough reason to give it a try, give it time and enjoy. It will be very rewarding.
