The Southern California LoopFest is back for another round! The greatest, most creative musical event you’ve never heard of returns to diPiazza’s in Long Beach, 5202 E Pacific Coast Hwy, for two nights of music and technology from around the world! www.socalloopfest.com
The fest runs Oct 28th and 29th, shows start a 7pm and admission is by donation.
For those of you wondering what is a “LoopFest?” It is a showcase of music and technology performance artists. These artists use hardware and/or software technologies to instantly record and play back sound. It is a diverse, creative, innovative, and fascinating display of talent, science, and art. Looping has been around for decades in academia, avant garde, and incorporates new technologies into making sound.
All of the artists are highly talented, highly creative, highly interesting, and amazingly in technologies and styles. Some are noise, some use traditional song forms, some are ambient, some are powerful, some are subtle. Our debut year for the Rocky Mountain LoopFest features a mix of local and national talent performing a variety of music with an incredible amount of cool technology.
This year the SoCal LoopFest features performers from 8 states and 5 countries. Performers of note include L.A’s own Steuart Liebig, Zack Walters of 3rd Alley, Jambandman David Gans, Aldo Caldo’s comedy/musical presentation, vocal looper extraordinaire Alissa Vox Raw from Toronto Canada, and the incredible music and instruments of Cabezas de Cera from Mexico City, Mexico.
Complete line-up, set-times, venue, and ticket information for each event is online at www.socalloopfest.com along with links to artist websites and video recorded performances from previous festivals. Facebook links are available for those who want to personally interact with the festival and performers, as well as links to stream the concerts live.
