Rick Walker comes all the way from Santa Cruz USA to the London Live-looping festival 2013. He has brought so many interesting musicians together at his Annual October Looping Festival there over the last 13 or so years and is a champion of live tech equipment and putting on a good show…
. He is also a massive collector of instruments as well as innovative sound making objects… I like his guitar made with different length door stops particularly and his percussion piece for handdryer.
He is an electronic music composer, percussionist, trapset drummer, multi-instrumentalist and found sound musician.
He has been designing live looping, sound processing and video performance programs, including designing the entire feature set of the new LP-2 Mini-Looper, with Bob Amstadt (of Looperlative), and Bill Putnam (Grammy-winning owner of Universal Audio).
