I laid down eight minutes of lovely guitar noises with my Oberheim EDP, on 
one of the sixteen tracks.  We then rewound the tape, and played the whole 
track with rhythm and my acoustic whacking away, while NOT listening to 
six-second loop I had made.  Then I started overlaying guitars.  And then 
several solos.  

During the mix, we pasted some hall reverb on the loop track, and then 
quick-faded the loop in under the A section of the tune, and out under the 
section of the tune.  However the loop 'mates' with the jazz in the rest 
the track is purely coincidental.

So the loop is the background.  Which becomes the foreground as the other 
instruments all fade away about 6 minutes into it.
