this is the ableton live footage of my mashup of two versions of "galang" -- the MIA original + the vijay iyer trio version. i like the way this helps us hear how iyer's rendition departs from as it stays true to its source.

as one can see, i've maintained the integrity of the iyer track while making two cuts in the MIA recording in order to keep them in-sync. the process of making this mashup thus called my attention to how iyer skips 14 measures of the original in order to repeat the chorus (after a clean 32 bars, surprise surprise), as well as that he plays 4 fewer bars of the sing-songy coda.

grab the audio here (including a version with MIA on the R and Iyer on the L): (centered) (stereo split)
