This chapter describes a lesson that gets learners to go beyond the loop paradigm typical to most DAW production environments by encouraging a focus on the musical content of looped materials. Students will develop skills using a DAW’s MIDI editing facilities for “re-calculating” musical content, such as note value augmentation/diminution and pitch transposition. In addition, students will investigate the potential of musical materials for variation, transformation, and re-combination in the context of extended musical structures. One of the key learning outcomes of this exercise is understanding that looped material need not remain a static and unaltered building block in a composition/production.

Keywords:   loop, DAW, pattern, minimalism, repetition, MIDI, accumulative
