These were created using the fabulous Gibson Echoplex Digital Pro Plus.
Some of them are excerpts of sessions with other musicians.

The wav-files are meant to be played continuously, i.e. as loops.

473K00:3032008 07 05 13:5320080704_7_9_001.mp3mp3 7:9 rhythm using the CMBVRS technique, basically: recording the same performance into two loop machines simultaneously and toggling the recording speed on one of them: On the left channel you have a 7/8 and on the right a 9/16. The 9/16 results by setting the right EDP to half speed before recording. While recording the same audio into both EDPs, toggle the speed of the right EDP to full speed on the sixth 8th. The result is that the first five 8th will become five 16th notes an octave higher, while the remaining two 8th notes will maintain their pitch and duration.
