There’s some very interesting things emerging from Loopy’s user base lately, and I thought I’d start writing about some artists who are using Loopy to great effect.
Ian Ljungquist sings in and writes for 4-piece Brooklyn-based indie-rock band Me You Us Them. Since discovering Loopy, Ian has begun a new experimental solo project entitled “Breakable Plans“, in which he explores the medium by creating loop-based music spontaneously and with whatever’s on hand at the time. In his words:
“I’ve always loved making loops. Creating loop-based music has been a passion of mine since I first discovered the extremely limited loop function on an old Line 6 Echo Pro delay rack unit.”
“I’ve been having so much fun with [Loopy] that I decided to turn it into a project in which I embrace, and even place emphasis on the limitations of the process. The idea behind “Breakable Plans” is that I just very casually and spontaneously record when I feel the urge, using only Loopy for iPhone, my voice, and whatever else is laying around.”
Ian’s unique deep-layering recording technique yields some fascinating results, lending a depth and scale to his “vocal electronic” productions that defy their humble iPhone-based origins.
Definitely someone to keep an eye on, Ian continues to post his creations on SoundCloud under the “Breakable Plans” moniker.
