Cello Live Looping with Cosmo D

Archie Pelago’s Cosmo D Loops Some Cello from Bangbang on Vimeo.

Cosmo D, NYC’s own cello looping wunderkid, stopped by Bangbang HQ this week and we recorded a quick video of how he uses Ableton Live to record his cello on stage. Cosmo tells me that he made this Ableton Live set a bit simpler than the set he uses on stage, so that it would be a little easier to follow along with what he’s doing. Let us know what you think in the comments!

Cosmo and the rest of Archie Pelago will be showing off more of their music and talking about Live at the next NYC Ableton Users Group this coming Thursday. It’s free, but make sure you register for the event to ensure a spot!
