Luis Angulo´s diverse musical influences are portrayed here through his experimental loop improvisations.Using guitar synths,effect proccessors and real time looping devices,he is able to paint a broad musical canvas taking you to an unexpected musical journey. This first release 'Primeros Ciclos' is a combination of sonic experimentation and live improvisation all done with an electric guitar. The first track 'comienzo' is a drone followed by a celtic like reed flute guitar synthesizer solo syncronized to a preprogramed drum box 6/8 african rhythm. The following track 'Nataraja dance' is a hypnotic backward guitar loop backed by an Indian tabla pattern synced again to a dance groove,sounding like a dancing boa snake. The dreamy live track 'Wasserfall' is a guitar piece with simple layers of canon notes accompanied with a dreamy melody. 'Cajita de musica' is an improvised evolving composition recorded live in Italy.This piece specially demonstrates what a single guitar can do layering synthesizers and guitar sounds put into a repeating loop.Listening to pieces like this it is hard to tell that there is only one person with one guitar creating such a wall of sound. For an audience a Live Looping concert can be an increadibly inspiring experience because you are not presented with a 'finished piece of music',as by the traditional concert form of playing back pre-written music.A direct quotation from the live looping community explains it further:'At a live looping show you are able to follow in detail how each musician is improvising and composing spontaneously and adding his parts to the music - note for note,loop for loop.It's like an instantly evolving ritual of magic that never repeats itself'...
