to go back to where i think this thread started....are videos of Y2K on YouTube useful?
every person who wants to learn how to do what i do...i send them to loopers-delight (and tell them that's where i got all my tool info & support when i was starting out) and i tell them to look on YouTube for looping videos.
i don't send them to the ableton boards unless they're already versed in hardware looping..

Zoe, I couldn't agree more. I like the idea of looping festivals etc., but were I to run one, I would not bill it as a looping festival. I would find some other theme, and then book appropriate looping artists. The whole looping tag would be a secondary detail, nothing more. Something journalists could write about.
As a consumer of music, I could care about looping about as much as I care about a guitarists choice of picks.

um, I see high profile people looping all the time. they are just not billed as "loopers"
as for my audience...depends on the city. my last major solo show in SF, with only me on the bill....sold out a 475 capacity hall and they let people in to sit on the floor.
but i expect a tiny, tiny fraction of my fans care about "looping". just like a tiny fraction of people who look at a web site care whether it was done in bbedit or dreamweaver.
i still think of looping as a technical term. interesting to those of us who care about technical things.

I'm at a loss to suggest a high profile live looper though,What about Zoe?
maybe Eberhard Weber(who would get audience) or Theo Travis.
Hey Zoe, if you headlined a loopfest how
many people do you think you could draw in?
