'Solstice' is a sort of sequel to 'Equinox'. Like some of my other pieces, it's performed by live looping with Ableton Live Software. I'm using an E-Bow to play the sustained parts. There is a fairly involved looping technique being used at 00'50''. The natural sound of the bass is used, with a synth bass sound triggered from the lowest string only. In addition, the arpeggios are being looped while I play other phrases on top, so the effect is as though I'm playing 3 parts at once.
For the video, I cut between two different performances of the piece to get different camera angles, but each performance is recorded live and in real time. If's filmed in front of a green screen to enable me to put the background in, which is just made from stock footage.
