While I was listening to contemporary music with Laurie Brown on CBC Radio 2 as recommended by a friend... I discovered a new genius in the music world!!
His name is Owen Pallett, he is a Canadian composer, violinist, keyboardist, and vocalist, who performs solo as Owen Pallett or, before 2010, under the name Final Fantasy. As Final Fantasy, he won the 2006 Polaris Music Prize for the album He Poos Clouds.
Pallett has been noted for his live performances, wherein he plays the violin into a loop pedal, a technique also used by musicians such as Andrew Bird, Jeremy Larson, Kishi Bashi, Emily Wells and Zoë Keating. Pallett uses Max/MSP and SooperLooper to do multi-phonic looping, which sends his violin signal to amplifiers across the stage.
Here are two of his composition!
Owen Pallett performs 'Lewis Takes Off His Shirt' at CBC Radio 2's 'Signalfest' in Vancouver.
