Title: Re: MUSIC - "D Torn Kaisers Aars E.T." tríbute to some heroes
One of the more poignant pieces of music, for me, that fits this description, was the live performance ‘Dreamweapon’ by Spacemen 3.  It might be worth a listen if you’re not familiar with it.

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"?
