RE: Miels Davis loop

> Is the sample from *Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud (Lift To The Scaffold)?*

yes, that's why it's 'music for the lift' . The 'story' page says:

The title refers 1) to Terry Riley's "Music for the Gift", an early tape
manipulation piece using a Miles Davis piece played by Chet Baker - and 2)
to a Miles Davis solo from "Ascenseur Pour L'echafaud" which was the raw
material for this piece. Miles Davis's trumpet is cut into pieces using a
slowly proceeding loop window. This manipulation has similarities to tape
loops but these loops move forward in time. This could not have been
realised without computer based Granular Synthesis.
