Extra special samples and sonic fictions by Loopy C (triggered by babblebox)

Music by Loopy C (the samples often unceremoniously chopped and mutilated) features in over 60 episodes particularly in 2018 and most of 2019. Thousands of different Loopy C “sonic fictions” were rotated in and out of the Babblebox usually on a weekly basis. It got to the point where a second “stereo” box “Babblebox C” had to be built. Loopy C lives in the mountain desert in California. Loopy C soundcloud page

PLAY ALONG (DUB PLATE) EPISODES

A play along episode in this context is where a supplied audio track has been been used in its entirety. Loopy C sometimes refers to these types of recordings as “dub plates”. Night Of Radiance is a 21 minute unadulterated piece by Loopy C that was used in full with only the saxophone added. This type of thing became hugely popular on Earth in 2020 during the Covid19 pandemic where people shared recordings over the internet and played over the top of them.
