A symphony of one with Gretchen Yanover

Cellist Gretchen Yanover.

We’re getting into the loop today with an episode devoted to looping artists!

Looping was developed by electro acoustic composers in the 1940’s, and involves repeating short sections of music and then adding new and varied sounds and textures. Most of the artists in this episode use software and/or a looping pedal to control their own loops and create layers of sounds independently.

This week's guest is cellist Gretchen Yanover.
