Wow. I'm speechless. Please don't sue me if I steel your quote!

experimental music seems to be the default for most live loop musicians. I simply enjoy seeing someon do something that is not that.While I think it's for sure more popular to be "experimental" (to some people that just means instrumental) I see musicians all the time using loopers to create live "pop" formatted music. For instance... Sunday night we went to see Imogen Heap (most known for the album she did as Frou Frou) at the Warfield. Our own Kid Beyond opened. Man was that a mother fucker of a show. Amazing. Sure many could call some of Andrew's improv stuff experimental, but most of it was rooted in good ol' fashion dance music, and the booties, they were a-shaken. Before him was a guitar looper. He was also pure standard pop music, but very good. I forget his name though... Then came Imogen. Wow. That girl had 2 Repeaters that she ran back and forth between, all the while singing like an angel (with a slight cold, but angelic none the less) I'd say there were few songs that didn't have a bit of looping in it. Anyway, that's art. Things always start "out there" and slowly mutate into something that's appealing to a wider audience. They're will always be the underground, but it supports the ground. That's where the people live. Mark ____________________________________________________________________________________ Want to start your own business? Learn how on Yahoo!
