Loops is an interactive music making application for Android. Using TouchOSC and Pure Data, I’ve created a variation on a step sequencer in which all of the selectable musical elements are recordings of stuck vinyl records. Each ‘Loop’ available to the user consists of exactly one revolution of a record, captured at the point where it would ordinarily get stuck and repeat almost endlessly. In the application, these loops can be rearranged in different patterns, mixed and placed in the stereo field to create original compositions made entirely of stuck records.
