I might undertake such a project on a smaller scale, but a book-length project is beyond my ambition. If there were a solid publishing deal, with money and a decent editor, it might be more attractive but I wouldn't do it on spec.

What might make sense would be a collection of articles including an historical introduction, profiles of noted looping artists, and a technical section with discussions of hardware and software and with theoretical and procedural discussion of different approaches and techniques of looping.
