Janek Gwizdala: Factor 1000
We’ve featured some great videos of Janek Gwizdala using looper pedals before, but this is just next level. “Factor 1000” is a song built from the bass guitar and a plethora of pedals.
“It is made using bass guitar as the only instrument,” he writes, “and a collection of pedals and effects including Iron Ether Frantabit, FMeron, Dubterranea, and Xerograph Deluxe, Line6 Helix Rack, Bananana Effects Tararira, Meris Ottobit Jr, Chase Bliss Dark World, EQ Cirquitos Vibrato Coral, DOD Meatbox Subsynth, and the Xotic Tri Logic ii Preamp.”
Gwizdala spends the first three minutes building an unbelievable sonic atmosphere before using it as his playground to solo over. The combination of surreal sounds and his virtuosic playing are sure to take your ears somewhere they’ve never been before.
“Factor 1000” is available now on all streaming services. If you’re looking for something more intimate, Gwizdala also released a second single called “La Herencia“.
