Another great Andre LaFosse lesson:
Structural techniques in live looping can lead to unique performances that combine elaborately-composed material with spontaneous, unrepeatable sonic events. This video examines “The Proposition” in two forms: a laid-back, bare bones version, with very basic looping functionality, and an uptempo, glitch-powered rendition that dishes out nearly every tool in the EDP toolkit. As with all of the song-structure videos, there’s freeze-frame analysis of the techniques used. There’s philosophical monologuing about DJ culture, performative aesthetics, visual presentation for performers who are terrified of their own bodies, and Don Henley’s sellout status. All this, plus a smattering of gratuitous cat pictures!
