This is just awesome.  A new generation of singer-songwriters have started accompanying their singing by using electronic looping.  In general, I haven't been very impressed.  But Owen Pallett, a Canadian violinist, takes it to a new level, and layers all the music live, piece by piece.  His entire concert from Paris last year on Youtube is worth watching, but start with "Many Lives 49mp", "This is the Dream of Win and Regine."  Holy cow.
