Unless mechanical is what you want...

having one chord playing all the way through is not so much the problem as having the same sound sample repeat itself through your piece... that's just mechanical

If you can do two asynchronous loops you can have one with a single note background, then the other looper brings in a chord every once in a while to change the harmonic structure. And those can vary in the performance according to your taste.

In endeavoring to strip my rig down, I've been playing with just the looper in the Line 6 M13. This is fun, but I find myself recording a loop and then just leaving it be while I play over the top. From a live looping standpoint, this feels like cheating. Everything turns into one long ambient guitar solo over a static loop which isn't really what I was after. Yes, I could go play with half speed and reverse and sometimes I do, but I still end up back at the soloing over a static loop point fairly quickly. Any advice? Does feedback work well enough on the M13 to make it viable for loop evolution? (I'm finding my existing expression pedals don't seem to give all that precise control with Line 6 equipment.) Or is it time to wire the EDP back into the set up?
