Yes, the folks on the L-D mailing list seems to share and
exceptionally open mind! :-)

A related OT:
A sort of grey zone I've been thinking about a lot lately is when
loops are played manually. I mean, instead of recording a part into a
machine that plays it back you just keep on playing that musical part,
with your instrument, over and over, like a looper. While the point in
using a looping device is to give a repeating pattern a machine-like
exactness the point in manually playing the loop is the opposite, to
achieve an organic inexactness for a monotonic content. Isn't this
rather to be described "repetitious music" or "minimal music" than
"live looping"?
