In 1979 Fripp was interviewed by Ron Gaskin.
RG: Could you simply explain the process of Frippertronics?
RF: Yes. I record on the left machine, the guitar is recorded on the left machine, the signal passes along the tape to the right machine where it's played back to the left machine and recorded a second time.
RF: The signal recorded the second time passes along the tape to the right machine where it's played back a second time and recorded a third.
RG: And at what point is it released into the room?
RF: Oh, straightaway. Unless, what I could do if I wanted to be crafty, would be to build up a chord which no one could hear and then turn the chord on, but, in fact, that doesn't happen. I've only done that, I think, on a couple of occasions. You hear it happening.
With this set of loops we can hear all kinds of chords and chords-in-the-making swimming up from the tape. Though missing the solos which would’ve gone over them at this concert, we’re left with something that’s complete in its own right.
