hmm, just happened to notice that sentence and it struck me odd..... You
might want to check out the people you are talking to before you start
talking down to them. Andre is one of the most innovative people I know of
as far as real-time looping in performance goes. He's become a master to
learn from, not explain the basics too. You should get a copy of his album
and ask him how he created it, amazing stuff.
