The exquisite loops of Dustin Wong

Watching experimental guitarist Dustin Wong perform is like watching a masterpiece being painted (though, at a much faster pace!). The artistry of watching him create the elaborate, beautiful songs as his hands elegantly move across the body of his tattered Fender, then delicately crafted, loop by loop, through a series of daisy-chained guitar pedals, is nearly as lovely as the music itself. Wong is out with a new release, Mediation of Ecstatic Energy, and joins the Morning Shift for a long-overdue session here at WBEZ. Photo: courtesy of Dustin Wong
