Re: MUSIC - "D Torn Kaisers Aars E.T." tríbute to some heroes

Yeah there were some people I saw doing that when I was living in LA that would strum electric guitar over and over with and after a bit your ear would focus in on the changes of the harmonic content above the repetitive notes or creating patterns in your mind forming out of the non-machine like rhythms. I would go with minimalist since there isn't overdubbing.

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"?
