For those of you who don't know Owen Pallett, before 2010 he went by the name of Final Fantasy. He is a brilliant violinist, also known for doing string arrangements for the likes of Arcade Fire and Beirut. In his live performances he uses a loopstation with which he samples himself, plays over what he played before and creates amazing walls of sound. When you close your eyes it's like you're listening to a full string quartet. Take a look at this, it's really fun to watch.

I saw him last monday at a church, where he played some songs off his great new album 'Heartland' but also some older work.
