WIRE=WAVE

PRETTYLITTLEPAW WIRE=WAVEWIRE=WAVE was the first official PLP release. It began with the idea to take a simple guitar progression, break it up into small loopable chunks, dump it into Ableton Live, and reconstruct it into something larger. As I was doing it, I felt like I was going through the same process I use when I work with field recordings. I really liked the way it came out so I decided to field record guitar.

WIRE=WAVE is music made by taking extended recordings of guitar manipulation and using various techniques and tools to find the moment within the mess (to paraphrase Hank Shocklee). It took a long time to do and I still like it a lot, which is really saying something.
