The musical ideas used in looping are as old as music itself: repetition and imitation, counterpoint and transformation.

Live looping is a novel way to create music which can be used with any style and instrument. The musician creates his own background by recording bits of playing during the music and has them looping as long as he needs them or repeating whenever he calls them back. One musician can create the sound of a whole orchestra.

For this project Charlie only uses sounds naturally produced by string instruments, no effects, no synth pads, no fancy frills, just pure looping.
