Kishi Bashi's Wild and Wonderful World Of Looping
  • THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2013

Kishi Bashi is as unique a musician as we've ever come across. Our love for the Virginian multi-instrumentalist started with "Bright Whites" last summer. The zany, blissed out first single packed the kind of joyful, instantaneous appeal that sent us scampering like teenagers on the last day of school to get our paws on his album 151a. Though an incredibly creative collection of songs, nothing prepared us for the wondrous way in which K Ishibashi reinvents songs for the stage. Joined by Tall Tall Trees' Mike Savino, our session with Kishi Bashi welcomes you to the world of looping; a treacherous, high wire musical act that offers very little safety netting for the musicians underneath. Pumping beat boxing, banjo, violin, and an endless stream of curious vocals into processors, looping pedals, and other fun gadgetry, K and Mike create an incredible swirl of music that could all go horribly wrong at any moment. It doesn't, of course. These men are professionals. But our latest session will have you guessing what might happen next. We, of course, are not ones to give away the surprise. You'll just have to step into this wild and wonderful world of music and see it for yourself.
