Helicopterbearshark is an eclectic musician who, through looping, creates soundscapes full of harmonies and melodies. Guitar and drums are typically the driving force but anything from violin to clarinet can find its way into the mix. As for the mix, it can develop just as easily into an electronic, high energy drum and bass feel, to a beautiful, melodic groove with the power of an orchestra, moving the listener spiritually as well as physically.
