Re: WHAT WERE WE DOING, MUSICALLY BEFORE......
Well since my first looping experiments were c1971 with a pair of Akai
4000D reel2reel machines (if they'd been Revoxes, maybe I could've
called it 'Drappertronics' :), I have to say not a great deal.
I'd played in a Beatles/Stones/Chuck Berry etc covers band whilst still
at school, done a bit of folk/blues (Davy Graham/Renbourn/Jansch etc) at
university, then it was off into the weird-s**t zone.
But before REALLY starting looping, with early digital stuff (Arion
DDS-4/Digitech 'Time Machine'), I was involved in improvised music & the
London Musicians' Collective (LMC), then Ivory Coasters, a proto-African
dance band - hilife, soukous, benga - a Sierra Leonian hilife band
(Supercombo), & a couple of others, before discovering the possibilities
of creating 2-part soukous canons on the DDS-4.
The rest, as they say, is (mostly obscure) history; I went back to my
LMC roots, but multi-layeredly.
Been a long road ...
