I made a mashup called Ishmael Goes to France and Germany, and then I used an iPod Touch to control Ableton Live to play it. Video and mp3 after the jump.
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
The tracks I used are:
Abdullah Ibrahim - Ishmael
Sebastien Tellier - Look
Tangerine Dream - One Night In Space
Ralph Towner - Piscean Dance
The Ralph Towner song (the drums) and the Ibrahim song (the bassline) are two of my favourite songs ever, and it was fun to use them in a way that would probably make their creators throw up. I’ll post another one of these in the next few weeks once its done.
EDIT. Andy says I should post this explanation:
The left fader is a delay thing on the bassline, the middle one is a bass/treble thing on the cymbal wash (which is just an EQed part of the bassline), the one on the right controls the volume of the flanger which is the crosshairs thing on the right (affects only the Seb Tellier track), the blue sideways fader is obviously pan on the Tellier track, the blue button at the bottom is just a “next track” button that skips from part to part, etc… Oh also the crosshairs also control an EQ thing on the guitar solo track, but because the solo and the full seb tellier tracks are never at the same time they don’t interfere.
I don’t know if that makes any sense, but hey.
