that's right ... for those interested, I'd like to recommend my little
"history of looping" essay, to be found on our website - it also mentiones
Pauline Oliveros and the minimalist tape techniques.

Why don't you (and/or the other classically trained loopists) put together
something about repetition (and the beginning of looping) in classical (or
other) music, for the website? I think it is a very interesting topic, and
although I've mentioned classical music in the essay, I couldn't go into
details (also, I really don't know much about it).
