Give a man a violin and a looping pedal, and he will give you a wall of sound in return -- if that man is Kishi Bashi, that is.

From touring with of Montreal and Regina Spektor to partially funding one of his albums through Kickstarter, Kishi Bashi is no stranger to the concept of DIY. With fluttering violin strokes, staccato string picking and layered vocals -- and beatboxing, when the time is right -- Kishi Bashi succeeds in surrounding the listener with a pleasant, continuous looping of music which results in beautifully-formed songs. Since getting things started with his solo work in 2011, Kishi Bashi released an EP last year and his new album, "151a," in April.

When listening to Kishi Bashi's music, listeners may easily start to forget that there's only one man to account for the amount of music coming out of the speakers, but when they remember this fact, it makes the music that much sweeter. Originally from Seattle, Kishi Bashi does a fascinating job of orchestrating innovative music by looping various styles of violin, his vocals and other sounds that create truly unique sounds.

In this session, Mike Savino, better known as Tall Tall Trees, sits in and performs with Kishi Bashi. Tall Tall Trees toured with Kishi Bashi throughout the summer of 2012, adding his own concoction of electric banjo and vocal loops.
