Robert Fripp

"Robert Fripp, the famed English guitarist, composer, and founder of the prog-rock band, King Crimson, takes up a brief residency in the Winter Garden to perform his solo Soundscapes. Based on his Frippertronics explorations of the '70s, Fripp now creates lush sonic tapestries with electric guitar and digital effects. Each performance of Soundscapes is site-specific, often done in majestic spaces, and always created in the spirit of the moment.

This performance is part of New Sounds Live, curated by John Schaefer, host and producer of WNYC Radio's popular shows New Sounds and Soundcheck"

This is happening at the World Financial Center in NYC today, Friday December 3rd at 12:30 pm and 7pm, and Saturday at the same two times. Free.

I saw Fripp do this at the Royal Festival Hall n London (in the lobby, actually) about 15 years ago. Crazy stuff. He spent well over half the time just putting his guitar back on its stand and letting loops/feedback play as he walked around behind the audience and chatted with the sound guy. A weird experience.

It's a shame Robert gets lost in the shuffle eno gets all the credit these days for what they created long ago.
