Turntablist Guitarist

The digital, digitized, and digitally refracted guitar-based music of Andre LaFosse is on this edition of New Sounds. LaFosse's latest release of "turntablist guitar" music - call it something like funk/glitch/hip-hop - just happens to have been performed live, on solo electric guitar. Actually, for live shows, La Fosse prepares his guitar to go through five Echoplex units simultaneously - creating endless looping possibilities and a lot of brain-freeze.
