Here is yet a new draft for all you lovely ones to enjoy. This time, the combination of an uplifting (draft) beat of sweet Peter and the horrible lack of courage in our Swedish society, inspired me to write a few lines on what is about to become “Le le le”. I wish we all were so much more courageous…

This is completely live even though the video may be out of sync here and there (we got a HUGE amount of drop frames when shooting this). I’m sorry that there are no close ups, but I’ll try to describe what we’re doing.
Starting with myself and what I’m doing with my Akai. I’m controlling three loops (bass, rhodes and synth), tweaking the cutoff and resonance of the instruments, tremolo of the rhodes sound and doing some effects on the vocals (mainly delay). I hope you can see what I’m playing. Otherwise it’s a short rhodes line in the beginning, a lead line and a pad. Software used is Ableton Live for triggering midi loops and Logic Pro’s software instruments. Midi is sent internally from Live to Logic.
Jonas is doing all the percussive parts on a Trigger Finger. There are tree different channels. The main drums, the soft drums and some extra loops and sounds. He is triggering different variations and fills, controlling decay and reverb and doing some beat repeating on some of the sounds, using Ableton Live.
Mathias is obviously playing the guitar. He is running MainStage for some different delay effects. On the floor he has a load of pedals, but I’m not entirely sure what he’s doing with them. Probably some pretty cool guitar-guy stuff. He is also using an E-Bow.
And last but not least we have Mathilda singing, but that is self explanatory. May I remind you that it’s live and recorded in one take!
