I stole that title directly from Wheaton’s site. No apologies. You’ll understand after you watch.
Quoth the Wheaton:
See that MacBook next to her? She uses that to sample herself several times to build a rhythm, and then she plays over it, like a one-woman string quartet. Or quintet. Or awesometet. I didn’t realize this the first time I heard her; I just thought her music was haunting and beautiful, but once I knew what she was doing, I was awestruck. In fact, knowing how she does it, I defy you to listen to it again and keep your jaw off the floor.
So you don’t have to watch her for the whole 7 min. Just watch her for a bit and then let it play in the background. Or better yet, don’t take your eyes off her once!
Wonder if I can get her permission to sample some of her music for the astronomy podcast this October.
