Yeah, yeah, yeah, you remind me of Eno's argument about creation, how it is possible to set the parameters and let the creation "create" itself, and this would be somebody's music as well. Like the Space Drums, I hate to listen to the radio and listen to the same grooves and breaks over and over again. There is no merit in doing that. I still think there is a line beyond which music becomes tainted, and I agree with you that this is a cultural line, and changes with the people and with the times. But I am all for progress, so let it all rip. | -----Original Message----- | From: Tim Nelson [mailto:email@example.com] | Sent: Wednesday 24 November 1999 4:08 AM | To: Loopers-Delight@annihilist.com | Subject: RE: delay -> looper || player -> loopist -> musician | | | Now there's a great big can o' worms...
