John McLaughlin NSJ 2011

JohnMcLauglinNSJ2011What a concert! John McLaughlin played with his 4-member group 'the 4th dimension' on the North Sea Jazz festival 2011 in Rotterdam. A lot of recent work with a double role for Gary Husband playing both keyboards and now and then drums too. On bass Etienne M'bappe and on drums Mark Mondesir. One of my favourites during the packed North Sea Jazz festival.

About me

I like music, especially making music. I listen to a lot of different stuff, but I like soul, jazz and fusion music most. I like to develop and experiment with tools to make music performance and improvisation on the spot more exciting. It is fun when unexpected musical things happen during a performance!

In recent years I developed the MIDI real-time Harmonizer, a tool for generating harmonized chords when playing a solo line. Inspired by the work of saxophonist Michael Brecker, I started to develop this tool to run on Mac and PC. Brecker played the Electronic Wind Instrument and used the Oberheim Xpander synth to generate random chords from an EWI solo line. Now you can accomplish the same thing with the MIDI real-time Harmonizer driving your own favourite (plugin) synths.
