Re: CREATION of an INTERNATIONAL LIVE LOOPER TRAVELING DATABASE for connecting tours and creating new festivals



Very interesting idea, but I don't see the point of having a 
'confidential' list. Beyond a public database driven list of Live-looping 
URLs with contact emails and some geographical and style indications, 
isn't there much more necessary?
