I've gone all Loopy

Click on the play button below to listen:

I'm thinking someone had better put me back in my box before it's too late!

Well, I've been experimenting again. I guess you could call it that anyway. I used to really be down on people who "composed" using loops; As in "loops of music create by other people". It just never seems like really "composing" to me...just clever borrowing and rearranging.

Then I tried it a little in Reason 4.0. And not only is it fun, it's a bit addicting. Especially this "Dr. Rex" thing. Basically, it can play back a drum beat or other loop that's been all "sliced up" into little snips, so you can change the tempo and/or rearrange the slices without changing the pitch.

So, both of these tracks are just really 2 minute "throw-aways", but still...it's a lot of fun!
