Live Looping in Musical Performance offers a diverse range of interdisciplinary perspectives on the application of live looping technology by lusophone performers and composers. This book explores various aspects, including the aesthetic component, instrumentation, and setup, highlighting the versatility of this technology in music-making.
Written by musicians and researchers from Portuguese-speaking countries, this book comprises eleven chapters that delve into various musical contexts, genres, and practices. The novelty of including collaborative texts written alongside non-professional researchers offers the possibility of drawing from real experience to consider how live looping has been changing and "cyborguising" the concept of music, the ritual of the performance, the identity of the musicians, and the public's expectations.
Live Looping in Musical Performance provides cutting-edge reading for composers and performers, as well as ethnomusicologists, students, and researchers working in the areas of music production, technology, and performance. This book addresses a broader audience, both academic and non-academic, who are interested in new processes of musical creativity in a post-human world.
