thought i'd kick this year off at a slightly slower pace.  cello was provided by one of my friends, recorded on her mobile phone.  electric piano line was programmed in fugue on my ipad.  the glitchy synth line you hear in the background was created using the samplr app.  the main beat is from me jamming out on my volca sample.  all guitars were done in guitar rig.  finally, everything was dumped into ableton for sequencing.  oh and the bass synth you hear at the end is from my pocket operator.

quite like how skittering and almost out of time the drum beat is when juxtaposed with the snippets of percussion from other samples.  kind of reminds me of some dj shadow beats or something on ninja tune [not that this is remotely in that guise at all...]

hope everyone had fun with their first week!
