this is a live energy bow guitar loop improvisation.
an "old style" ambient ebow loop, created using an ibanez destroyer guitar and a second generation energy bow, routed through a restored vintage 1990s digitech whammy II pitch pedal, then through the oberheim echoplex pro looper, and finally through the digitech tsr-24s 24-bit reverb.
a completely improvised, unrehearsed, unplanned, live loop, captured as it happened, in the key of D major, this is the fifth and final of five ebow loops from the july 24th session; this is take one.
recorded live on july 24, 2011. additional footage filmed by dave stafford at lake of menteith, central scotland, on july 30, 2011.
sometimes, the gods smile, and you get a loop like this. but not very often. it was this piece that made me realise that the july 24th, 2011 session was an album...not a session.
this is track six from "the haunting".
