I just did some rough calculations and figure out that I made a little over 60% of this past years income (September 2000 - September 2001) directly from Looping. This included sales from my first abstract electronica CD, Loop.pooL (done entirely in ACID, the PC, loop based program)which, luckily, have been really good, composing and recording documentary soundtracks (1 with one pending), modern dance commissions (9) and production jobs (2) that required those skills as primary skills for the project and whose clients hired me because they saw me Loop live....... and live looping solo and/or duet concerts (I do a live world music/electronica/looping project with my incredible brother, called "Walkers" for Corporate clients and private parties). The rest of my income derives from more conventional studio recording gigs, touring,teaching, book sales and oddball gigs. I suppose that partially qualifies me for the professional loopers club. You can put 60% of my name on the list ;-). You can either spell it: "Rick Wa.." or "Loop.p..." yours, Rick Walker (loop.pool) P.S. I did not include the massive profits from sales of t-shirts from our 'Worlds' First Bass Looping Tour'.........actually, just kidding: I haven't had the time to get the damn things made up, but, and you heard it here first, I will make a very limited run of those shirts if anyone is interested. Let me know off list if you'd like me to reserve one for you. They will be pricey ($20-25 with shipping) just because of the limited nature of the run, which I apologize for in advance.
