My first-year college roomate was really into the beatles (during a time
when that wasn't particularly popular...) and gave me a pretty big dose.
"Revolution #9" had a pretty big effect on me. I hadn't heard anything like
it before, and it gave me a lot to think about! Certainly one of the first
sound-collage type looping pieces I heard. I certainly hadn't realized just
how adventurous the Beatles had been with their music.
another, similar type of track that I really liked at that time came from
odd source. Steve Vai's "Little Pieces of Seaweed" from an (I think)
unreleased album called "Flex-able leftovers". Extrememly warped, funny,
very adventurous track, with some looped sound-collage elements.
