uh, please walk me through this, cause I'm just not seeing how this could 
possibly make a viable performance. You have one piece of music using 16 
loops, 10 minutes each. So just the time to record the audio into all of 
these loops will take you 160 minutes. And we are all watching you while 
you record them. In order for the audience to get the impression that 
are loops (assuming that is even possible with a 10 minute loop), the loop 
needs to repeat at least twice. So now you are talking about an additional 
320 minutes, for a total of 480 minutes for one song? 8 hours? Or even if 
you have some of the loops repeating in parallel, you are still talking at 
least 3-4 hours for one musical piece.

Do you really create music like that? Do you actually find audiences with 
the patience to sit through it? I can't even imagine this, unless it is 
of those performance art torture/endurance experiments people like to do 
art school.

what does that have to do with loop time and how you use it?
