Live looping with USB controllers, wireless iOS, and Ableton Live. Nothing was pre-recorded. All audio is from Native Instruments Battery, Kontakt, Reaktor, and Absynth.
A little explanation on what happened at 4:30… I was attempting to layer a synth lead with the same instance of Monark used for bass. The currently-playing bass part at 4:30 was a MIDI loop. Thinking it was an audio loop, I dialed-in more delay and lowered the volume on Monark to prep it for a higher-octave synth lead, not realizing I was altering the currently-playing bass MIDI loop. When I started to play the synth lead, the bass notes were fighting for note priority. It sounds like all I did was add delay to the bass for the last minute, but that was not the original intent. However if I multi-tracked these sessions and corrected these mistakes, it would no longer be a live performance.
