I just wonder what if the loops aren't loops in the ordinary sense but 
immense compressions, sound going into ultrasonics, Guiseppe Logan, etc.? 
Just curious. Sometimes I think my music's an odd inversion of yours, 
trying to wk. as many notes as possible into a short interval but then 
doing stuff w/ it for ages -
