Busking with an iPad, part 1

Unwoman and DocPop Making Music

An unexpected consequence of Unwoman’s “Play Somewhere Weird Everyday” project is that it’s resulted in me going out and making music publicly. I’ve long been terrified of busking, but with Erica’s encouragement (and musical support) I’ve been performing some of my iPad songs on local street corners and subway stations.

Yesterday, we performed an hour long “UnPopular” set in front of Mission Comics and Art. Although our material was written as solo pieces, we chipped in on each others songs. Below is a clip of my rendition of Prefuse73’s remix of TransAm’s “Different Kind of Love”. I’m using Nanoloop for iPhone, which has a brief spazz-out near the end of the song… sorry about that.
