+ JUNK PERCUSSION
The work of Loop B consists of 2 aspects: the junk percussion and the electronic structure. The compositions are developed from keyboards and samples processed in computer. And after the percussion is played live over the electronic base.
Brazilian rhythms appear in an electronic and in the percussion, coloring the electronic beats with the brazilian swing.
His first album was released in 1992. His early researches in Brazilian Music were recorded in the compilation Electronic Music Brazil (Sony Music, 1997). In this track, Loop played a samba in a scrap stove.
The percussion instruments form the other part of the story. Scrap of car: fuel tank, dashboard, door. Scraps computer: monitor, keyboard. Scraps of home appliances: washing machine, refrigerator, stove. And other unusual objects, as empty cartridges of bullets cannon, mannequin leg and swords toy, everyone becomes percussion instrument, enriching the music with their unusual timbres.
To explore better the sound of objects, Loop uses several kinds of drumsticks, files and a hammer drill, which expands the scenic and performatic character.
