Other People’s Imaginary Feast

other people

Nicolas Jaar has celebrated the 100th issue of his Other People label with a collaborative project called Other People’s Imaginary Feast, featuring Holly Herndon, William Basinski, Julia Holter and more.

The drummers are controlling all the samples you hear on the video with the help of a new hardware/software system called Sensory Percussion created by Nico’s longtime collaborator Tlacael Esparza. This new technology enables drummers to easily control an unlimited array of electronic samples, synths and audio effects with any acoustic drum kit. (It made its debut on Kickstarter last week.)

The full piece is up on http://www.other-people.net and it features additional arrangement and processing.
