Re: Re: Software vs Hardware loopers
Yes, Mark, you HAVE to loop at Y2K-X and furthermore, in real time
if you want to perform there.
There are so many people who want to perform anywhere and there are so
many people who
use pre-recorded loops in their live performances who want to play
I have become extremely narrow on this definition for acceptance to
perform at the loopfestival......
otherwise I would be overwhelmed with eager applicants.
It is a LIVE LOOPING Festival...............not just a looping festival
and not a typical music festival.
If anyone performs at the festival, they need to have LIVE LOOPING at
the heart of their aesthetic
I am immovable on this point. I think I have to be.
I had a very famous act play last years festival and though, I enjoyed
their performances, they just
basically played over the top of pre-recorded loops. As famous as they
are, they won't be playing
again this year unless they are willing to change their mode to include
real time live looping:
Creating musical loops in real time in front of the audience. LIVE

International Live Looping Festival)
