Re: f.s. looperlative and eclipse

Hi Stefan,
I like your idea very much.This would be a musical crystallization of 
the awareness of sparing(one players movements effecting the others 
sound.(and sound representing consciousness)A higher faster sound when 
one enters the others striking range would be a simple example.There 
could also be ways to resolve the sound or soften it when "countered"by 
the oppoenant .Having very different movement styles would also 
increase the drama.Boxing has a triplet "feel",Thai boxing 2's and 4's, 
TOOL makes a very good soundtrack for Brazillian Ju-Jitzu. (Something I 
observed before I knew Maynard was a brown belt in that art).Tai Chi 
moves toward Ambient. As does (to me anyway) Chi-Gung and Shaolin . 
Sooo,maybe this can go somewhere..
The Wishbass is still here.I have no idea what the shipping would 
be.I'm in northern California.Please let me know if you're 
interested.I'd like you to have it.
