Re: What public is attracted by a Y2K Sampler Video?
This is a very good point. Most looping is more of a "Long Form" method. It might be fairer to compare it to a symphony, novel or movie, both of which the public has PLENTY of patience with. The constant comparison to pop music doesn't do the form any justice. Now the question: How would we change the context of what people expect?

I think the Y2K festival is a good thing. But I have yet to see any decent looping
compositions that are under 8 minutes (I am sure there are some, but I'm talking averages
here). It usually takes time to build the parts and get it going. There's lots of great looping
on youtube, but the limit on youtube video is 10 minutes. So how do you take a festival of
loopers and condense it down to 10 minutes. That's the real challenge....
