AMERICAN DREAMLAND - LOOP 2.4.3
A portrait of the cultural hodgepodge of American heritage, this 3rd album of percussion-based Loop 2.4.3 begins as a nihilistic snapshot of the postmodern psyche, flashes back to childhood, and journeys through moments of isolation, anger and turmoil, love, tenderness, and nostalgia. From the dark, surreal world of Edgar Allan Poe, to the rebellious freedom of Easy Rider; from the ancient, desolate plains of Minnesota to the post-industrial streets of Brooklyn, this is an American journey in unconventioanl songs...

"Visceral and satisfying...an astonishing variety of brand-new yet iconic sounds that create a riveting aura, a genuine time warp - all in astonishingly intimate and dynamic, demonstration-quality sound." - Gramophone

Loop 2.4.3 - Zodiac Dust

 

ZODIAC DUST - LOOP 2.4.3
"the name sounds like an addictive new substance that all the kids are taking. Perhaps it soon will be. For now, Zodiac Dust is a fittingly daze-inducing and awe-inspiring work of musical experimentation by Brooklyn duo Loop 2.4.3 that merges myriad elements of classical, jazz, rock and many other world musics."
(Dave Clifford - Fanatic Promotion)

UNDERGROUND
solo marimba version
includes 1 large manuscript score

This work appears on Loop 2.4.3's new CD, Zodiac Dust, where it is performed on marimba, steel drum, and piano. This solo version was commissioned by percussionist Stephen Martin. It combines the steel drum melody into the marimba part, making it a stand alone piece - perfect for the marimba recitalist.

$25

ALMGLOCKEN MELODIEN
duo version (steel drum and marimba or any two melodic instruments)
includes 2 manuscript scores (performed from score)

This is a revised version of the track that appears on Loop 2.4.3's debut album, Batterie. This work has been described as " a duet with marimba and steel drum, delicate and supple as a spider web and an exercise in how scrumptious sheer sound can be, like the flavor of Javanese gamelan distilled in four hands."
(Chris Rietz, Lansing State Journal)
