I am not really into this music yet, its hard to find in Brasil, and not
very my taste, but I imagine that it has a lot of loopy caracter.
Are there records out with such heavy looped rythms?

Would this be a way to use real drums and percussion to combine the machine
like steady rythm with the real punch of unacurate human hit drum?

It would give a nice stage picture, too: imagine the drumer walking around
stage, grabing an instrument every now and then, hitting it short and
intense. In between he has time to relax or act, but the sound slowly grows
to hell...
(it is possible to connect an infinite number of pedal boards or single
overdub pedals to the ECHOPLEX, so you can operate it from various points
on the stage!)

This is exactly it. I hope we can exchange some sound samples about it,
