If you’ve been listening to Chords of Orion for any length of time, you know that Robert Fripp’s tape looping technique called Frippertronics is a big influence (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frippertronics). Although I have several reel to reel tape decks and can get a good Frippertronics sound with them, I really wanted to see if Apple’s Mainstage 3 live performance software was up to the task. This piece is the result. It’s all MainStage 3 and its native effects, along with a volume pedal and an EBow. There is a lot of potential to create great sounding ambient guitar patches using the “stock” Mainstage 3 components. I predict more experiments in the near future!
