Alien Loop de Loops for flute and electronics
- Editor's Choice
Alien Loop de Loops is not at all what you might expect from a piece for flute and electronics. This is rock flute - or as near as our instrument gets! There are few standard electronic effects used on the recording - sampled guitars, bongos, congas,, cymbals, harmonicas etc - which creates a very rhythmic and 'alien' sound world to which the flute contributes its own striking line. Finding a CD player may be a challenge(!) but this is such a good piece that it's worth the effort! Fun will be had by all!
