Chiming in on this nostalgia thread. I’ve been on the list for a verrry long time and enjoying all the enthusiasm and helpful info here. Possible I played at the very first Looping Festival??? Also knew Kim, who lived not far from me. One year we drove down to the festival together, and I occasionally stopped by his studio to see what he was up to. Early on, he and Matthias came over to my place to see what I was doing with the EDP and Drumkat and I gave them a little concert. I had been making music with synths and computers ever since the mid ‘80s. My first computer music was programmed in BASIC, first synths were the fine collection of relics at Oberlin Conservatory: giant Moog, Buchla, Arp, Putney, and the glorious DX-7. I especially loved working with multi-track tape (big 1” reels) and layering vocals. This eventually led to me triggering samples of my voice using the Drumkat so I could sing along with myself live. The moment the EDP came out, which allowed me to control everything using MIDI notes from the Dtumkat, I totally found my calling as a looper. Still have two EDPs here at the studio though I moved on to Mobius many years ago. Interesting to note the compositional style each looper influenced. The EDP allowed one to switch cleanly between loops running at various clocks, so my whole body of work at that time was full of sudden contrasting changes — really suited my experimental approach to music. Then Mobius allowed me to fade between multiple stereo loops and everything became much more fluid and spacious. Some of those old EDP songs, though, were challenging to port over, now requiring multiple drum hits where there used to be just one, in order to spread loops out in the stereo field. Happy looping!
