Re: 2 Days of Loop Performance Recording Madness

Nice work, Kris.  The long track, (2140414) is the better number , IMO.  
percussion and voices really make it shine.  You should include it in your 
collaboration album.  Maybe you can post a video of one of these shows.

BTW, please tell us about the venue and crowd.  How many fans present, 
was their reaction to the aforementioned piece?  You don't usually think 
Boise as being an avant garde kind of town, but apparently there is 
something going on there. - CW
