very different functions of music
to understand the purpose of the music we are making we could maybe
ask first what it should help the listener to concentrate on:
1 ambience / airport / exposition / shop / soundtrack -> Sensation
2 partner / the party / animating lyrics / dance -> Body / Emotion
3 himself / inconscious / universe -> Soul
4 music itself / philosophy / interesting lyrics -> Mind / discipline /
obviously those aims can be combined to some degree.
1 and 3 are usually instrumental and appear similar, but the effect
is almost oposit: someone who dives into his own world does not
4 can be present in any other music for those who need to satisfy the
mind to open for the other senses.
Loops are very usefull for 1..3 and lesser for 4
