Kishi Bashi has learned to leverage his string playing skills with looping.
Looping is a simple technique – it involves recording a snippet of sound, playing it back, and then adding layers. Used masterfully, it can become transformative, producing rhythms and layers and letting solo artists accompany themselves.
He is a founding member of Jupiter One, as well as a touring member of Of Montreal and Regina Spektor.
[via CreateDigitalMusic which has an article where you can learn more about looping.] (I first saw looping used in this way by Intonarumori about 10 years ago – he was using a Boomerang.)
