RE: Future loop music -- What will it sound like & Where will it come from?
Adding a wrinkle to the "What will the future of loop music be / sound
A while back I was asking if there was anyone who represented the
of loop-based music." When, basically no-one was offered up as being a
light showing the way I thought, "Oh well, maybe my question wasn't
understood. I mean, SOMEONE must be breaking new ground."
But, recently it occurs to me there may be another "way" forward. What if
there is no galvanizing personality / talent - a Jimi Hendrix or a Miles
Davis - that seems to lead the way. What if there is a galvanizing "wave"
or "movement" or "scene"?
An example of this idea would be "Electronica." Certainly it's a new
phenomenon to see such popular music selling so well with so few
recognizable names. Here we have a style that seems to have emerged
a "leading-light" of star talent, but rather a wave / style / movement of
folks all kicking around a bunch of related ideas.

basic question.Then Jimi came out 'and the fuzz tone and well you
might get the
picture,he was somebody who summed it all up and made all those
something that captured the imaginations and soul of an entire
nothing like it had been before.
Where is the next Jimi?
