Dustin Wong Sees "Loop Pedal as Mirror"

Nonstop Sound spoke with guitar prodigy Dustin Wong, who grew up in Japan and is currently based in Baltimore, after his mesmerizing gig at Shea Stadium in Bushwick. Wong uses musical composition and performance as a form of therapy and healing for his body and soul. He creates sweeping soundscapes with a vast array of pedals and electronics to augment the power within his fingers and guitar, lulling audiences into a serene and distant world. Wong sees his loop pedals as the musical iteration of a mirror, as a way to "reflect yourself, musically."
