RE: looping software?

Hey Leonardo and All,

The web page for O.R.I. is:  http://www.reinformation.com/
The last time I talked to them they wanted $29.00 for the program. 
They do a good job of performing too.  Pretty amusing.  Have fun.

While I'm here I hope nobody minds me throwing in a little plug.
I'll be doing an improvised electronic, organic, loop collage set at 
Georges 5th St. Cafe, 517 South 5th St, Philadelphia, May 28th from 
9:00 to 10:30pm and there's no cover.  I'll be pounding on my 
Jupiter-6 and SH-101 looping through an RDS-8000 and some other F/X.  
I'm going under the name of "Theatre of the Mind".
I do an electronic experimental event once every month "Upstairs at 
Nick's" at 16 So. 2nd St., Phila. June 3rd called E L E C T R O L U S T.  
This month I'm featuring David Tolento's "Music for Isolation Tanks" and 
"Theatre of the Mind"(myself-opening) with dj John Schenk spinning between 
sets.  Should be a great evening.
If anyone is interested in doing a set in the near future give me a shout 
at <ngc1275@voicenet.com> or leave a message at 610.664.8809.
