27 here, but still possessing a far greater preference for looping in
pre-mating music for social rituals among young single people, preferably
in noisy, crowded, alcohol-and-drug-laden environments with excessive
volumes, as opposed to serene family oriented settings for mature

The discussion about "What do we call it" is certainly interesting, but I
think the "it" in question is not the whole of "loop music" but just the
"ambient-experimental improvisations employing loops" category. "Loop
music" includes a lot of other music, some of which even has well
recognized names and well known and populated venues for its performance!

resisting oppression by the ambient tyranny,
