Amy X Neuburg is best known for her wildly entertaining 'avant-cabaret' performances for voice and live electronics, in which she uses an electronic drumset, a real-time looping machine, and an array of sounds and samples to construct complex, emotionally intense songs and stories. In live performance she uses the looper to build up thick vocal harmonies and rhythms one layer at a time, and controls all loops and samples by hitting
drum pads, stomping on foot pedals, and grabbing faders; there are no canned or pre-recorded tracks.
