The Art of Live-Looping
Educational Outreach Assembly Program
The Art of Live-Looping is a 21st Century art-form consisting of recording, layering, mixing and arranging vocals, instruments and sounds in a live performance using digital looping (sampling) technology that plays back in continuously repeating loops, allowing musicians the freedom to create full songs on the fly in real time.
It's like "digital plate spinning with sound" and is a perfect example of the "ADHD mind" at work!
Arthur Lee Land’s Art of Live-Looping K-12 Assembly Program gives students an intimate, hands-on look into this amazing hi-tech 21st Century art-form. Using his own story as a “hyperactive” child, Arthur shares his unique viewpoint as a professional musician and recording artist, who has re-framed his perception of ADHD by way of the Hunter / Farmer Theory (see below) as a dynamic gift that has allowed him to become a global pioneer and innovator of the Art of Live-Looping. This highly interactive and inspirational program fully engages students, as Arthur facilitates them, in the process of improvised song creation by looping up their own parts. BOTH students AND teachers will leave with a new understanding of this incredible art-form, along with the message that each of us have our own unique gifts and learning styles, highlighting the importance of Harmony together, in the classroom, and in life.
