    Best known as the founder and leader of King Crimson, Robert Fripp developed a tape-looping technique eventually dubbed “Frippertronics,” which he used when he worked with Brian Eno in the mid 1970’s. Frippertronics has become Soundscapes, where he creates loops in real time, creating multiple layers, and then improvises solos on top of all of it. The Fernandes Sustainer plays a key part in this, as it provides orchestrated string-like sustain which with Robert's effect units creates astonishing textures. Sustainer can also be heard in his soloing, extending single notes and chords. Fripp set up in the secular cathedral of the World Financial Center for a two-day residency in early December of 2010 and part of a live performance recorded on December 4, along with John Schaefer’s interview, is can be heard at the WNYC New Sounds site.
