December 2015: New/old Music from two decades ago
Infinite Regression is a collection of live improvisations recorded almost 20 years ago, at the peak of my ambient guitar looping fixation. Remastered in December 2015, this contains long-unavailable material as well as performances that have never seen the light of day until now.
the secret cinematic collaborative Echoplex project is here.
“Selective Sync Conflict” is composer and multi-instrumentalist Ross Garren (aka Taggart) taking EDP loops of mine, and building pieces on top of them using everything from prepared piano to harmonica to digital synthesizers. It’s the first Echoplex-based studio work I’ve released in half a decade, and I’m hugely proud to have been involved in the creation of this stuff.
It was co-produced and mixed by Nick DePinna, and includes guest appearances by Gavin Salmon on live drum set and percussion, Erika Oba on flute, and Hitomi Oba on saxophone. The cover art is a staggeringly detailed piece of completely hand-drawn work by Bridget Klappert.
Stream it for free and/or purchase a download at Bandcamp. And thank you for listening.
I’m now offering online lessons via Skype and Google Hangouts. Any level of experience or skill is welcome; you DO NOT need to be a avant-guitar or looping fanatic, and the first lesson is totally free.
Drop me a line at andreteaches (at) gmail (dot) com to inquire about scheduling and subjects for study.
Here’s a complete show from August 2004 at WitZend in Venice, California:

I’ve uploaded almost two hours of fresh live footage since I started gigging solo again in the middle of 2013. Visit my YouTube channel for more information, or check out a playlist of all of them right here:
