FLOOPS marks the sixth appearance of American expatriate composer Jeff Gburek to this blog.
His latest release is a collection of loop-oriented pieces played on a prepared guitar. Though Bandcamp is horrible for this sort of work, I recommend buying the album, putting the tracks into “shuffle” mode, and letting the sounds wash over you. You may hear the same pieces over and over again, but the context will feel different.
FLOOPS ends up becoming several hours’ worth of intensive listening, reminding me somewhat of Brian Eno’s generative music or Adrian Belew’s recent flux experiments.
