Alpha Competition Entry: Live recording “They sent me”

My latest experiment on the Eigenharp Pico can be heard in the video below.

I’m trying to establish a groove with layers of live loops of classical instruments and then something radical on top: an electric sitar with controllable delay feedback through the breathpipe.

What do you think, worth pursuing the idea and turn it into a real song with vocals and such?

I might be entering this recording into the Eigenharp Alpha competition also, but I’m not certain yet. Please let me know what your impressions are.

    I like it a lot, and I’ve really enjoyed all your compositions. As a new Pico owner, I find your music and web site inspiring. I wish you the best!

    Geert, great song and video. The sound on the video is amazingly clear .. what do you use to record your video and how do you get such clear audio?

      I record my video with a regular HD video recorder, but I record the audio of EigenD separately. My audio interface is from Metric Halo, which allows you to record any sound that is played through it. So when I play a song on the Eigenharp, I simply press record in the MIO Console application, which records the channels … and then I slightly process it in Wave Editor to do a tiny bit of mastering.

      I recorded a tutorial that explains how to get the audio directly captured from EigenD without using an external microphone. Hope this is useful for you:

    That was wonderfully expressive. I very much enjoyed it. I have loved all your compositions, but I think this was my favorite. Thanks for taking the time to share it and to create this wonderful resource. As a new Pico player I am very grateful for the instruction and tips you provide.

    Thanks a lot for your comments here guys, but I’d appreciate it if you would post a comment on the actual YouTube video also. This is what the judges of the competition will see and the more comments there, the better! 🙂
