        I have not posted to the Looper list before: my roomate is a 
and synthesist and I'm a singer and flutist...
        Though I do not wish to attack anyone on their views of music and 
wide range of expressivity, I do not think a DJ is a musician. He may be
a craftsman and an artist, just as say, a non-musician sound engineer
can be, but I *do* believe you must play a musical instrument to be
considered a musician. (And, yes, a voice *is* a musical instrument).:)
        If there is disagreement here, perhaps we must broaden our concept 
what a musical instrument is...?
