Making Audio Messes in the Creative Sandbox!

I took a looping workshop years ago at Jazz Camp West, and have wanted a looper ever since. The possibilities of layering my own voice, to create a full vocal orchestra all by myself… Well, it just made my toes tingle!

For some reason, I thought looping required expensive equipment, so I shelved the idea while I saved up.

Then I discovered the Loopy HD app… For $3.99 (it was on sale for 50% off its usual $7.99 price tag), I started looping on my iPhone that very day!

I share my messy looping experiments right here and over on SoundCloud, where you can follow me to get my latest loops.

I now refer to the 10 “rules” in this song as my Creative Sandbox Way Guideposts. But when I recorded this song, they were the 10 “rules” of my Creative Sandbox Manifesto. For a deeper dive into the 10 Guideposts (aka “rules”) in the song, see my book The Creative Sandbox Way, which comes out on 11/15/16! http://ift.tt/2dWXCpV
