Ableton Push Mashup of J-Pop Sensation, Yasutaka Nakata by Rishabh Rajan

This has to be one of the coolest mashups we've heard in a while, especially of those produced in Live 9 and performed using an Ableton Push, Leap Motion and an acoustic guitar. Watch the video here.  

Ableton Certified Trainer & AskAudioMag & macProVideo trainer, Rishabh Rajan, continues to push the boundaries of what can be done with Ableton Push. He doesn't just play the thing, he produces cool sounding music too. 

In this video he's created a mashup of the songs by one of his favorite J-Pop artists, Yasutaka Nakata, featuring Ian Lam on acoustic guitar. 

This mashup was created in Ableton Live and performed on Ableton Push & Leap Motion. (Yes, Rishabh isn't just feeling the music when waving his hands in front of his laptop... he's controlling it too!)
