    Although repetition is a major force in music it was never used in this way before
    Terry Riley

    Repetition is a form of change
    Brian Eno

    A way for one person to make an awful lot of noise. Wonderful!
    Robert Fripp



    "No *****footing was a major point of departure for both musicians, and Fripp seemed to recognize it instantly as such: “There it was, a way for one person to make an awful lot of noise. Wonderful!” So much did Fripp like The Heavenly Music Corporation that when King Crimson went on the road in the fall of 1972, he would play the tape before the band came onstage and after they left.”...........

    Great article with really excellent clips. No *****footing was the album that changed what and how I listened to music. I have listened to that more than any recording I have owned. That and the Live in Paris CD are in my car now. Thanks for posting.

    Riley wasn't the first to use tape loops. Hard to argue that he wasn't the first to use them in the way that he used them. ; >
