I haven't found a way to deal with this, but I recognize it as a problem as
well ... Looping improvs with several loopers are essentially different
from solo loops. I did a couple of live loops with 2 other loopers and we
weren't really happy with the outcome just because of this ... no breaks
etc. I guess it takes a lot of looping improv hours together to find ways
to opening this up, and enabling open spaces and interesting dynamic
changes to happen. Has anyone found good recipes?
