Re: 1st Looping Festival
In Boston, I was organizing looping-based events at the Middle East
Downstairs under the name "The Loopers' Collective" starting in 1998 and
running through 2000. I think we did about six or seven of them. We also
did one in Rhode Island.
Over several different events instrumentation included theremin, violin,
bass, voice, diggeri-doo, marimba, keyboards, drums, guitar, chain-saws,
band-saws, flute, video-games, hammer-dulcimer, trumpet, a small chamber
orchestra, and turntables.
There came a time when people seemed to be coming out of the wood work,
finding me and asking to be on these events. I mention this because NONE
of the people who participated and who each were loopers for several years
at that point had ever heard on Loopers-Delight. They still aren't. This
is a great list-group, but it represents only a very very small fraction of
the "loopers" out there.
The shows great fun to witness. And mostly fun to organize. :-)
