Have u attended Y2K14 International Live Loop Asia Festival in Singapore?
If you have missed it, it's a pity! U should come next year.
Check out some of the videos captured in the festival.
Credits goes to Beng Hui for recording Mandoman Snippet video
Randolf Arriola (Y2K14 Live Loop Asia organiser) came up on stage
and started an impromptu live vocal and music jam with Singaporean Live Looper Weish.
Stylish Nonsense totally blew me off!
Lol...never have I seen any group like them!
Their performance was just eccentric in an interesting way.
The crowd were shouting together with them in their song "Here come frequency".
For those who were there to watch them live, you know what I mean. :P
Below is a chilled version of their songs:
Some wonderful people I have met during the festival:
- Singapore-based live loopers: Seah Goh, Edward Cheang, Weish, Kai, Roz Feroz, Ismahairie, SA, Randolf Arriola
- Thailand-based live loopers: Kasemsmai Wongchayasilpa, Stylish Nonsense
- Japanese-based looper: Mandoman Hideki
- Other loopers: Para Sabda (United States) and Wil Kolen (Netherlands)
- Sound Crew Engineer: Yew Jin
- Musicians: Yan Neil Chan
- Photographer: John Nathan Fernandez
- Audience: Max Tkachenko, Ashley Neo, Germaine etc...

If I missed out your name, ahh...sorry about that. TOo many people.
U can say "hi" to me if you see me in future music gigs.
Haha..I am pretty "shy".
Lastly I want to thank Randolf Arriola, Live Loop Asia merchanise/logitics helpers, Artistry, SAE crew
and Singapore representative music partners (SAE Institute, Team108, Awe in One, Pulse of Music, Electronics & Engineering Pte Ltd), those donators who have contributed to show their support in Live Loop Asia Festival.
I am just grateful for this experience.
It was being real being part of the looping community...totally live and unrehearsed... .
Live looping is like tightrope walking. It take guts to do it live.
U record yourself performing live in small musical parts and
you cannot press rewind when it goes wrong...lol...tho you can "undo".
When the performance go seriously hay-wired/"wrong",
let's support these loopers by giving them encouragement
and cheering them on.
For those who are in Thailand, catch other live loopers in Thailand
as the festival continues its tour to its last destination Thailand this year.
