The Electronic Musician
The most fundamental concept supporting Loop Surfing is based on musicianship that develops from playing a variety of Electronic Instruments in the same way a musician plays a piano or a guitar.
Loop Surfing goes beyond playing just one instrument in a traditional sense due to the added array of sounds that may make up a single performance.
The electronic musician in this concept is more akin to a composer whereas elements that make up a single musical piece may contain rhythm, melody and even vocals from a wide range of sounds and instruments. In this way the musical result proposed is more like a composition.
The term Loop Surfing refers to a more specific method within the larger genre of EDM that results in an improvised approach to the playback of these compositions.
This could be understood as a live remix of a composed piece die to the artist being in direct control of a variety of sounds and sound engineering elements that make up a particular piece.
