Anniversary are always a good time to celebrate!
And this day, some 25 years ago, was the birth of the first dedicated Live Looping pedal, invented by Matthias Grob and Eric Obermûhlner.
Of course, Live Looping existed before this date (by linking 2 real tape recorders, or playing with the feedback of analog -and then digital- delays).

This new invention took the interest of bigger manufacturers, who could produce it at a larger scale, with reduced costs. This was the beginning of the democratisation of Live Looping, maybe a sad news in a way, but a good one for me because i discovered my first looper in 2004..
So this is my Live Looping mini EP.
As per definition, everything you hear is played, recorded and mixed Live.
(a way to defend me for all the mistakes you will hear..)
No impro here, this is Live Looping composition.
For the curious, you can check some live recording of the first 2tracks there:
Thanks for listening!
