Pigano… or how I didn’t go to Berlin

In April I wanted to go to Berlin to attend Ableton Loop but it was cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Instead we had #LoopAtHome with daily challenges. For the first challenge I built an instrument called Pigano. I also had other ideas for names – eg. Pigtar, Pisophone, Trumpig – but Pigano won my Instagram survey fair and square! In the video I talk about how I recorded this instrument (pigstrument?) and made a whole song using only that one sample.

The finished song is called Dances with Pigs and you can listen to it here or on your streaming site of choice!
