i can't think of anything more awful than the "loop music" section at a 
era equivalent of "borders" (okay maybe one or two things more awful)...

i remember a discussion on the list about whether it's fair to talk about
"loop" music as its own special category, somehow separate from the flow of
music culture in general...like, delay music, or sampled or cello or 
music, as though the instrument or technique employed to create the music
determines its typology (i stop this line of reasoning at accordion music,
because it is indeed in a category unto itself :-)
