numbernaut introducing:-

music made using a laptop. take a selection of samples of recorded musical instruments, work them together with some effects & create loops. loops are the building blocks. put them together to make a track. Add more effects to merge the loops together. you have created your own recorded music. Music that has never been performed but stands alongside recordings of traditionally played music.

if listening to recordings is a pale imitation of hearing music performed live, and records are what you most listen to, could i find a way to make listening to recorded sound more comparable to the live experience. for me i want to be involved in the music. at a concert the audience are a part of the experience. playing & performing the music is getting close to the heart of it. when recorded instrument samples are so readily available why not build my own music from them. so creating recordings of imaginary performances & sessions that never actually happened but the pieces come together under my instruction and i have created a personalised impression of what i like to listen to. not as well produced as recordings made in an expensive studio, and lacking the joy of hearing the music of other people, but if music exists in the ether & is brought to our ears by musicians & composers, is that same musical spark available to me.
