Looping & Scratching With Audio Tape

Jeremy Bell shared this video that captures a looping jam session, on guitar and manually ‘scratched’ audio tape, using his homemade ScrubBoard.

Here’s what he has to say about the performance:

in addition to redesigning my homemade audio gear, I’ve also been spending a lot of time practicing, so now I actually have some solid skills, unlike in my previous videos!

I’m looking for a good live venue to show off my newfound ScrubBoard chops, but in the meantime, please enjoy this video excerpt of my live set. More coming soon!

  1. It must feel good to have kept at it and start to develop skills. I couldn’t do that. But if you close your eyes and listen it’s like…meh. Musically or sonically boring. Just my opinion, don’t take it to heart. Keep at it! I like where your heading. You might appreciate this dude, what he’s doing. http://youtu.be/088AWsTtTFU

  2. Kinda the reverse of what Laurie Anderson did with her tape bow violin. I remember a performance which ended with her using the bow to say “thank you, th-th-th-th-thank you.”
