Moog Lap Steel Explorations Part 2 – a live looping improvisation by Bill Walker, using the new Moog Lap Steel and Looperlative LP-1. 

The improvisation features the usage of the guitar’s onboard filters, and using an Ethos preamp for distortion, in tandem with the Moog guitar’s infinite sustain capability to get a high volume feedback response at a low volume,

The LP-1 is being controlled by a Gordius Little Giant MIDI controller and an iPhone using the OSC app and a Missing Link WiFi to MIDI adaptor.
