Re: What public is attracted by a Y2K Sampler Video? (one man band, no style)

I think its a good idea to give a theme to a festival.
Jazz is almost as versatile as LiveLooping is. A Jazz festival usually  
needs a further direction/definition, too.

I completely disagree about the One Man Band definition for  
LiveLooping though: Even though it may be more understandable, its not  
very attractive. I think its the artistically least interesting and  
most economical aspect of LiveLooping: * manage to do the same cheaper  
as a bigger band would do better *.
To equal LiveLooping and One Man Band kills what sounds unique with  
LiveLooping and disrespects what all the musicians playing just one or  
two instruments discovered with LiveLooping!
