Isn't that what we call "live looping"? For example Andy Butler, that  
recently posted in this thread, likes to work with musical structures  
in focus (as opposed to working only with "pure sound", with  
"transition" or with "sheer attitude", "deconstruction"... or  
whatever expressions different artists stick with). Another live  
looper that comes to my mind is Steve Lawson; I just received his  
latest album in the mail and he is as musically structured as ever -  
producing multi thematic music with a fret less bass and a  
Looperlative eight track looping device. The cool thing with Steve  
IMHO is that he makes use of good chops (yeah, that WORD - here we go  
again....) to twist the emotional side of music that is well  
structured by theory, moulding it into something different.
