Now days, the tools available to the engineer for constructing a performance are incredible. Very often a recording ends up being a collaboration between the performing artist and the post production engineer. The videos below celebrate this by creating compelling performances out of mashed up video snippets. There is no attempt to make it look like a real performance, instead the choppy edits feature the fact that the editing is the performance. It highlights the artistry of audio/video engineering... oh, and some cute kids too.
I hope you enjoy these two videos of constructed performances: Drums and Oona Rocks. In many ways this is much like the Human Piano we posted about earlier.
