Re: Jamie Lidell live looping movie

Hi Andrew,

I'm very much enjoying listening to your stuff on myspace.....I'm 
digging your grooves and textures/timbres....very hip.....(out of 
curiousity, what software you using? I'm always curious about the 
creative tools)....I love that few seconds of sonic atmosphere...Buy 
First Second Free is nice, combining the beautiful glitch with 
time...very nice...Maybe if I get to Halifax some day, we could play 
some music...(I know nothing of halifax, is there a happening 
experimental music scene there?)

RE: Lidell: I see why some people like him (energetic groove based 
performance) but he's not my cup of tea. (I do keep hearing reference 
to him using Max....good!)....but I personally can't stand all his 
dancing around. But I do like the video...looks like somebody was using 
Jitter? I wonder if I'd like the music if I didn't see him bopping and 
waving about...but hey, maybe I'd be popular if I started 
dancing/waving/bopping like that....(doubt it. who wants to see a 
shaved head quarter-tone trumpet playing looper dance around....MAYBE 
Ted Killian and I will dance together at our performance at 
BEMF....Ted?) For me, I like music to hit on multiple dimensions: 
Visceral, Emotional, Intellectual (kind of gut, feeling, form)...these 
are not strict categories, but flexible with a lot of 
crossover......the music I enjoy the most is a multi-dimensional hit. 
Where I thoroughly enjoyed the viscerality of Lidell's beats and 
singing, I personally missed depth in the other dimensions...
