RE: What public is attracted by a Y2K Sampler Video?

Howdy, newcomer here. You know, some multi-instrumentalists like Andrew Bird perform their songs live with the help of looping stations, and his songs are usually medium-length folk rock stuff, though there's some more rock and swing jazz in his earlier work. If we manage to get a good video of him live in which we actually see him use his loop station, could be a good way to show the public what the concept is.

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

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....
