Mathew Buelt, a musician from Littleton has been working towards pushing the boundaries of the definition of the “solo artist.” Based upon the craft of live looping, Mathew’s music begins with simple repeated patterns, a basis for deep improvisation and interstellar exploration. His music can be compared to one man jam band Keller Williams, but focuses more on incorporating electronic sounds.
A typical set begins with a solid bass groove, the launch pad for additive guitar work. Using reverb, delay, fuzz, “wah-wah”, and e-bow effects, Mathew builds his loops to shape-shift through various moods and themes. Over time, the listeners lose touch with the loop’s original familiarity and are left surrounded by a swirling circle of danceable transcendence.
Mathew puts a new spin on live loop music that jam and electronic fans can easily access. Based off of the simple concept of “repetition”, but engaged in “transformation,” the music of Mathew Buelt stimulates the mind and the dancing shoes.
