Great advice, Mark.
I've always told insecure live looping newbies who are playing the
festival for the first time
to just play something that they think is really cool and interesting.
If you are fascinated by what you are doing, there will be others in
the audience who will 'get it'.
I also tell them to make sure that they have 6 distinctive musical
pieces in their 30 minute sets......
one that have distinctive beginnings and distinctive
endings.........this is to keep the audience
fresh with what you are presenting.
A great exercise doing this is to set a 5 minute alarm clock up so that
for 30 straight minutes,
every single day, you discipline yourself to create 6 complete pieces,
come hell, mistakes, or high
water in exactly 30 minutes............do this everyday for 2 straight
weeks without fail and just watch how
your live shows will come together very quickly.
