Biography

Sleeping Loops started out as an album written by Kyle McCarthy. Since Kyle was 16 he had written all of his solo music under the name “Speedwalker of 89.” However, when Kyle wrote “Sleeping Loops” the album in his friend’s basement studio he realized that what he had just made was completely different from all the music he had made before. Since then Kyle has composed hundreds of sleeping sounding, mellow, lo-fi loops. His song-writing philosophy focuses on capturing a musical moment in its most pure and freshest form. Therefore, there are many loops that Kyle has created that he would not be able to play again since it was recorded directly after it was made. Nevertheless, Kyle still has a library of songs that he is able to play live from the numerous albums he has released. in 2013 Kyle will be composing the music for a documentary that he will also be directing called “We Like It Here”: a film that takes a look at his hometown, Long Beach NY, before and after Superstorm Sandy. Hurricane Sandy is important to Kyle’s musical narrative in that he composed his album “Sorta” right before and after the storm.

For up to date information on Kyle’s music you can follow on tumblr, Kyle uses his tumblr page sleepingloops.tumblr.com as a loop diary these days and post weekly updates with music he has been working on.
