My thinking has been to create some high
profile (to the media, at least) specific looping events to create the
conciousness in the musical community of the emergence and legitmacy
of live looping as a viable new artform...I think we should all think
seriously about gathering three loopers (including from outlying
areas) and putting on our own Regional Looping Festivals.
Yesterday was the first anniversary party for the Los Angeles
chapter of American Composers Forum. One topic of discussion was how
to involve exponents of Electronica, DJ, Looping, etc. We're
interested in collaborating with presenters in Los Angeles area, and
we're hoping to put together a festival sometime in the coming years.
Our organization is well-established on a national level, with a
number of programs, our own CD label, etc.
