I think he was talking about compositions made of loops generated by
other people. The sort of Lego-brick process you can get with a
GarageBand type program which comes with a large library of loops,
including pitched instruments playing chord vamps and such. If you
don't have a way to generate completely new audio information (i.e. a
traditional type instrument), then you're limited to collage-type work
of varying complexity. Which isn't to say that approach is invalid,
just that it makes harmonic exploration more difficult.
