Hello, About a week ago, I performed with percussionist KD and guitarist Ruben Ramos as a trio. It was the first time for me to use my Jamman live. (Click the link to find a more detailed overview of it).

In short, the Jamman is a looping/recording device that lets you overdub and replace parts on the fly to create loops which you can play on top of and/or alter at any moment. I have been working diligently to learn how to use this device and have been finding that it opens up a whole new world of spontaneity and creativity for me.

When KD is using his Echoplex and Ableton Live software and I am using my Jamman synched to him, we are able to make the trio sound like a lot more like a 6 or 7 piece band. As well as looping my bass, I have been using Miraton with my laptop running into the Jamman to create loops which are a mixture of bass and samples. I am big fan of Ikue Mori and have been trying to emulate some of the stuff she does with sound collages in my own way. New List: 1) Susie Ibarra - Flower After Flower 2) Karlheinz Stockhausen - Kontakte 3) Wadada Leo Smith - The Golden Quartet 4) Iannis Xenakis - Electronic Music 5) Kinky - Kinky 6) Tetsu Inoue/Carl Stone - pict.soul 7) Sidestepper - 3 am 8) Gagaku - Gagaku 9) Miles Davis - Bitches Brew 10) Praxis - Warszawa
