This is interesting, isn't it? I do not like drum machines for its stupid
repetitivity, but I like loops for it. As you say, it turns sound more
etheral, but still not mechanic. I also felt this with the written loop
compositions like Reich or Glass (minimal music). While the electronic loop
bring me peace (usualy), the "human" loop brings the atmosphere of work of
the poor guys who had to play the same stuff forever...

So what is the magic of the loop?
