The Academic – Keeping things new and interesting!

Irish band The Academic created a first-of-its-kind Facebook Live performance of their single, “Bear Claws,” using the audio/video time lag to create a visual loop sampler.

Here’s how: They rearranged each instrument on “Bear Claws” to fit Facebook Live’s delay, with each loop getting more complex, adding instruments, rhythms, and melodies. Additionally, by projecting the video live from a soundstage they created an infinite tunnel consisting of all the previously recorded loops.

That’s pretty fucking cool if you think about it! This Irish band show some serious potential for future releases and are going to keep the music industry fresh by thinking outside of the box!!!
