Re: The Live Looping Community: myth or reality
There's always gonna be some equivocation when it
comes to defining stuff like this, but I think in our
case it has to be extended to include things like:
1) a network to provide a greater knowledge/database
both technically and technologically.
2) a support system for diseminating gig info, both
for informing members of said 'community' when/where
events are taking place so that members may attend,
and also to assist in organizing the events in the
3) a means of initial contact and subsequent
communication for collaborations, both in live
performance and recording projects.
4) more of a group identity as a means of feedback to
the manufacturers of looping gear to reflect which
features are more or less desireable in new equipment.
(as we've noted before, Boss/Roland seems to be exempt
from this one...)
