Chompi + Roland 404

I did an acoustronic jam in the park in Beacon NY today. My jam partner was Ben Sergentanis. He played a well worn Roland 404 sampler and a pre-production Chompi looper. I played resonator guitar through a Hologram Microcosm.

Ben’s set was built around beats sampled through the 404. They were well curated – clever and flavorful. He was using the Chompi to manipulate them in real time.

It was a sunny pleasant day. We were playing through a PA, but not loud. After I had done a particularly peaceful and abstract segment, a woman in the park came up and said: “That made me happy.” It was my favorite complement ever.
