Paul Lansky: Dancetracks

“Usually electronic feedback is considered a dreaded phenomenon to be dealt with in sound reproduction. But guitarist Sparr seemed able to harness such force to his advantage in Paul Lansky’s “Dance Tracks,” in which a distinctive rock beat prevailed. He required as much virtuosity on the electronics as on the guitar.

Utilizing hands, feet and knees he commanded the most fearsome array of rheostats, potentiometers, semiconductors, and integrated circuits this side of Cape Canaveral. And he concurrently accompanied on the guitar, improvising as he proceeded with astonishing know-how.”
