Re: Soundscapes/Frippertronics debate postscript
To Hedewa7: Sorry I misspelled it. If I don't have it right this time,
forget it. If I have it right, forget it as well.
Chris: You fail to combine Fripp's playing technique with the use of
looping, which is really what Frippertronics is all about. I already
(and you quoted me on it) that the term started out as a joke, just as I
already explained earlier that my line about Soundscapes becoming the new
fashionable term was also humorous. My version of Soundscapes follows this
approach, and if I come up with a different term obviously no harm will
