RE: Loops curative/restful powers

I've done a lot of live looping with dancers, and my experience is that 
they don't really *listen* to the music, it just happens while they do 
their thing.  Really.  Maybe they're responding to it on some 
subconscious level.  I've gotten the impression that asking a modern 
dancer to synchronize to music is received with the same enthusiasm 
you'd encounter when asking a poet to write something that rhymes.

This is not intended as a slight on dancers.  Or poets.

I also did a live soundtrack to a silent movie (Aelita: Queen Of Mars) 
that featured a lot of looping, in a trio context.  It was a tremendous 
amount of work.
