More About Al-Hofmann

Willy Sparrow, a.k.a. Al Hofmann in virtual worlds, such as Second Life, Metropolis, few others), was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in a family of musicians, and started to play the guitar at the age of five.

In Amsterdam (home base), he is gigging around performing material from his latest CD "The signs are everywhere" in which he introduces his Midi guitar playing and multilayered system, where different instruments sounds,(using a midi guitar convertor) can be recorded in real time and played at the same time on the principal of accumulating musical phrases in a loop device.
A new approach to the "One man band"concept.

Gear: Self made midi guitar. Shadow midi convertor, Roland RC-300 loop station, Roland JV1010 sound module.Drum machine Boss dr. 880. Digitech rp200 guitar processor... that's all!
