The Live Racks are based on samples made over five days in Nairobi. The Racks are set up so that you can morph from pure, multi-sampled recordings to heavily treated, filtered and arpeggiated forms.
“I wanted to approach this project with the utmost respect to the culture and history behind the instruments and musicians, but with the ability to push the sonic boundaries with the use of Ableton Live. I sat down with all the artists and asked them about the history of all the instruments – everyone was very happy this vision of cross-pollinating the traditional with music technology.”
