Dear Looping Community, People have been very cynical (with really good reason) about the manufacturers springing for demo videos of looping devices (see the exchanges below). Gang, if we are really serious about taking this community out to the world at large, we are going to need to take matters into our own hands. This community has unbelievable resources at our command. We, collectively, own digital video cameras, digital cameras,recording studios, mixing boards, microphones, servers, fttp sites, promotional and production acumen, etc., etc. At loopstock, individuals digitally recorded the events on both video and audio and had these things ready for posting within a week of the event...................all of this was done for love of looping , love of creativity and love of community. I say we forget about money (as long as we have the necessities of food, lodging, children and equipment ;-) covered) and start planning on expanding this community with all of our resources and love of what it is that we are doing. Some of us are too busy to participate in this kind of adventure on a day to day basis and that is fine........... Even they, however, can lend a hand when possible for la causa. I demand a high wage when I tour or make recording or soundtracks.................I also will play damn near any looping event that I can (when scheduling permits) for free or expenses just because I love this community and this 'artform' (I know, I know, Kim, it is not , technically, an artform) so much. If our resources are not state of the art, so be it. I think some of the prominent musicians on this forum can help out with demonstrations of this gear even if it is not completely PRO. I know I would. I'm reasonably sure my brother would (who knows enough about the repeater already to make me weak in the knees). OK, enough soapboxing............................let's just do it!!!! yours, in art and creativity and looping and having fun doing it, Rick Walker (loop.pool) people wrote: "Doesnt anyone on this list live in Hollywood, and have a freind in the film buisiness? Dont they realize how important an EDP Demonstration video is to the world of music ? hollywood: ha! but, i believe that kim f. tried to organise this w/gibson, some buncha years ago..... no dice, yet. best, dt / splattercell"
