Apartment Symphony – A Looping POV Masterpiece

This video by musician Keith Peskosky, his Apartment Symphony entry into an online video competition, is a traveling, looping mind-bender of music layers. In the video notes and comments, he explains:

“What happens when Guitar Center and Gopro offer a competition to record a video without editing? You get my Academy Award winning performance in my short film… And some music too.

“I recorded it using Ableton Live Looper module and mics hidden all over the house. The mess made it easy to hide the cables. Everything was automated including when each part would record, overdub, stop, etc. With everything automated I could get the video ‘done in one’ take.”
