live performances by members of the chain tape collective

NEMO 018
year: 2006

project coordinator:Tim Nelson

CT-Live is a virtual concert. As with the Collective's previous efforts, this recording is based around a theme, in this case that the music on this project was performed in front of an audience.

Somehow loopers have gotten the reputation of being, shall we say, a little bit solitary when compared to musicians who tend to travel around in groups. The image persists of the electronic musician hunched over a computer or multi-tracker in a bedroom 'studio'. The Chain Tape Collective is here to set the record straight. Well, sort of... With the notable exception of events like Rick Walker's Live Looping Festivals, members of the looping community rarely get the opportunity to share the concert stage. But that's not to say we're hermits. We're just spread out over a lot of geography.
CT-Live is a virtual concert. As with the Collective's previous efforts, this recording is based around a theme, in this case that the music on this project was performed in front of an audience. It's not intended to be an accurate representation of what we actually sound like in live performance, nor is it necessary for the audiences in question to be large. The venues at which this project was recorded range from barrooms to houseparties, from festival crowds to the intimacy of the performer's own kitchen. You'll hear the quirks of live performance; conversations, laughter, footsteps, babies and audience participation. You'll hear missed notes and the sound of footswitches clicking, distortion, feedback. But hopefully you'll also hear the spirit of community and the magic of live performance. On with the show...

Mostly casual improvisations done in two different coffeehouses. The coffee machines generally win the battle of noise....
