No [more] Pussyfooting
No [more] Pussyfooting brings back to live the classic experimental studio-albums “No Pussyfooting” and “Evening Star” by Brian Eno and Robert Fripp. In these pre-ambient albums from the early '70s Brian Eno blends his tape-loop experiments with Robert Fripp's rock guitar, creating unique layered soundscapes.
Two specific pieces from both albums will be presented: "The Heavenly Music Corporation" (A-side of "No Pussyfooting") and "An Index of Metals" (B-side of "Evening Star"). Both pieces, each taking up an entire side of an LP, beautifully explore the rich sound textures of the electric guitar in combination with tape-loops.
Using contemporary technology in combination with the original “frippertronics” set-up of two reel-to-reel tape-recorders, this project aims at restoring these gems of experimental repertoire, originally created in the studio, and bringing them back to the stage.
