"great walker bros"


you know man, i understood some of the criticisms of loopstock  
regarding the idea of looping music vs music which utilises tools  
HOWEVER i can acknowledge any small community and the supporters and  
networks which it values.

and i feel that rick walker's loopstock is a good thing. a very good  
thing. enough that i think you are unfair of criticising him for not  
understanding art music. unfair enough to be called on it.

well i'm 27 but not above hanging out with high school musicians. if  
you wish to hold this against me feel free. older musicians in the  
peoria area lack a willingness to do what it takes for the sake of  
music itself.

you're right.

i know fuck all.

i can't play "summertime" in reggae time on a hammond b-3 with a live  
drummer and left-hand and pedal bass, adjusting Eventide parameters and  
PCM-80 looping functions IN BETWEEN bass notes with my left hand and  
building a diatonic space bed with my right hand on a Moog as the drums  
continue on in preperation for my solo.

no fucking way dude. i'm obviously an asshole.

if i knew anything about art music there's no way i'd move from  
improvised diatonic 8th note synth sequences into a synth pop cover  
with a classic piece of textural instrumental music wedged in the  
instrumental solo section.

and if i did it certainly wouldn't be located here:

you're right. i have no experience in art music whatsoever.

pardon me while i go masturbate to some john cage records to humble  
myself in the ways of art music.
