ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When I was 17 I was listening to the Weather Report live album 8:30 and heard Jaco perform his solo live-looping piece 'Slang'. It changed the way I thought about playing the bass and so began my obsession with making music using the bass as a solo instrument.
Whilst I was studying at The Guildhall School, a friend introduced me to the fantastic Eberhard Weber album Pendulum. This album really opened my eyes to the possibilities of using live-looping technology to create vast soundscapes and textures as a basis for improvisation.
Mandala is the culmination of my ongoing experimentation with looping technology. Each track is a live improvisation using the Looperlative LP1.
I hope you like it x

"A solo bass guitar record improvised live that often sounds nothing like bass guitar, Simon Little‘s Mandala is enjoyable, highly listenable and varied both sonically and in terms of mood." Phil Wain, No Treble

"Brilliant album - really inspiring" Matt Stevens
