I hear ya...
I did miss a lot of the concerts you mentioned,
except Margaret Lancaster's performance. I
really liked the Appleton piece. You're right,
it was very effective. I didn't notice any
looping, though. Just one playback of what
she just played while she was tapping. When
she played *while* tapping was pretty amazing,
and i didn't find it gimmicky at all...very
Phil Kline's composition for 3 video screens and
30 boomboxes certainly employed looping, but not
really in the real-time sense. Much of what was
pre-recorded on all those cassettes was looped
for sure. Interestingly: since they couldn't all
be precisely in time, the drift among 30 different
boomboxes created some pretty wild..."pulsing" is
i guess what you'd call it. The result was very
loop-like...you heard loops that were not on tape
per se, just certain frequencies interacted with
each other in a cyclical way so that these loops
sort of "appeared" out of thin air. Crazy. And

Agreed on the dream room...some constructive
feedback to the organizers for next time
couldn't hurt. Even when i was in there,
half the time i didn't know what i was listening
All in all though, a really wonderful experience.
