KPFK 1 and Da Mobile Rig

WHEW!  John Schneider of KPFK here in Los Angeles called me just yesterday to confirm a spot on his very popular Global Village program on air this morning.  I just got to the studio after pretty much the funnest interview ever… I’ve done aplenty, but this man does rock the house in the interview department.  (and yes, I just like saying funnest, I know how off the english charts I am here.) We covered a whole bunch of stuff, and, last minute, even worked it out to play live… had a great time.  I’ll post a link as soon as its archived just in case you’re looking for ipod fodder. Thanks John!

For those of you tuning in for the first time to the blog, I hope you got here by the main site which is perenially under construction, we’ll get it right soon, though.  Do subscribe the blog and/or mailing list while you’re here though, over to the right of the page.

The pic is of the Mobile Rig or ‘The Todd’ as they call it here at JonSound, designed by Jon Gottlieb and Pablo Molina.  All the stuff I shipped or brought from the east, racked up and ready for battle.  More about that and TaskForce soon, just wanted to say hi and greet any new readers! Feel free to say hi back in the comments.  See you at Banning’s Center or FarmLab, or on the River!!!! (gotta go write some more music now.)

  1. Hi, just found your site through an old broken link in a forum re: looping, to a song called Icey Sleeves. Are there any posts on your blog describing your setup, and are there any songs you’ve recorded live that I can listen too? I’m really interested in live looping (guitar) and would love to hear what you do and how it’s done. Thanks!

  2. Hey Rex, thank you for stopping by! I’m more than happy to share some details with you. just email me at For now, though, Beginner’s Mind is a looping tune from nothing, and Icy Sleeves is actually a live performance, but there are some obvious prerecorded loops in there as well. Basically I use Ableton Live with a looper called Sooperlooper (Mac) running inside it. For windows users I recommend Mobius, a great looping plugin. Let’s talk. Best, Todd
