  Beautiful and evocative chamber music for the new millenium.

I'd love to know how you made it (improvisation? composed? multi-tracked? live looped?

Really nice, Sylvain!

  Thanks Rick,
This was recorded in one take with all looping and effects done in samplewiz. No further editing or effects except for copy and pasting the beginning at the end to bring closure to the piece.

I approach samplewiz as a livelooper... If you're in "note hold" mode, every note on the keyboard becomes like a track on a multitrack looper (each with a different playback rate). For this piece, I used the forward and backwards loop settings, so things get go sound a bit different. Add some delay and mess with the envelope and it should sound nice. Once you have a good bed of asynchronous loops, you can exit "note hold" n'y tapping rather than swiping the control box (this keeps the held notes). I then changed the settings around and played over the loops without "overdubbing".

Samplewiz is quite powerful... You can also change the loop start and end points in between notes to add variety.
