Personal Takes

Every day at Loop, we’re inviting three people to give short presentations on stage, each offering a personal take on music-making. Like a good DJ set or an old-time variety show, Personal Takes will see sounds and stories gathered from different musical worlds and thrown together on stage.

These mini-talks could include big-picture essays on the state of music, detailed analyses of songs and sounds, or frank confessionals about weird sonic obsessions. They’ll be delivered by the likes of Jamila Woods, Emma Warren and duendita, among other composers, producers and songwriters.

It doesn’t really matter what they speak about, as long as it concerns making music and takes no longer 15 minutes (anyone who breaks these rules will be politely but swiftly ejected from the stage). Beyond that, we’d prefer not to spoil the surprise. All you need is an open mind and a short attention span.
