Just rebuilt my pedal-board (the actual board that is, pedals are still the same but I’m looking to upgrade and change a few) and fooled around with my loop pedal this afternoon. Enjoy!
It has been my dream for a long time to build a Rotator as Robby Kilgore calls it. You can see it in action in some videos below.
I first got to know about this through my friend Bernhard Wagner and he also just built it so I could fool around with it!
To tell you shortly what it is, it is a software that adds a second note to whatever I am playing on the EWI (or any other MIDI device) with set intervals. It also rotates through this settings so I will have different intervals every time I change or replay a note! As a horn player, I can’t tell you how exciting it is to create harmonies! (I even started playing accordion some years ago to get harmonies)

Here is Mike Brecker using the Rotator (for some reasons the video didn’t play on phones but on most computers)
Den 25november är det premiär för mitt loopsax projekt. En liten grej då jag får testa olika idéer osv inför en publik! Just nu befinner jag mig på träningsläger i Kalix inför detta.
OBS! Det är ett slutet event och ni kommer bara in om ni medelar mig i förväg!
I’ll take the liberty of showing you another clip with me playing solo saxophone. It is from my Graduation concert at Bistro Hijazz december 5th, 2012. I wasn’t aware that there was a video recording of it until now, and I was really happy to see it! The music has already been published here.
