Re: site specific looping
I donīt think Nadia was claiming that site-specific was HER term. To put my understanding of the word as it is used in Art generally, is that the site where the piece is performed has something to say about the piece itself, it maybe special acoustics, or a history/story attached to the place. It may have some architecture that allows the performer to move in a particular way in relationship to the audience, or it may refer to "playing of the place" itself. Via hits and percussion...
I think maybe of us, as improvisors will find themselves reacting to the venue, however, doing a new concert each time in a new location is called "a gig".
Lovely stuff Nadia...
(my first ever girlfriend when I was 8 or 9 was called Nadia.. ahhh where is she now?)
