Cross-References

Let the Power Fall is an album of "frippertronics"—a process involving two tape recorders that allow Fripp to play guitar over himself. In concert, he can then play live over the compiled recording. The tape loop system was devised for Fripp by Brian Eno, who utilized this technique on his own "Discreet Music" album.

In addition to his band, King Crimson, Fripp has performed with and/or produced such artists as David Bowie, Brian Eno, Peter Hammill, Talking Heads, Peter Gabriel, David Sylvian, and The Roches.
