*For my original track 'Electrolegs' from my band The New Caledonia-

*Here is my Mars Volta Medley - Jon Theodore

This was filmed and recorded as one continuous, single take with no editing to the videos or drums in post production

I put this medley together to show my interpretation of some of my favorite Tomas Haake/Meshuggah moments. I did this solely to challenge myself.

Once I had chosen the grooves I wanted I arranged them using Ableton Live with no edits or tempo changes. I was aiming for flow, groove and climax with the arrangement.
I committed the whole medley to memory and learnt it all by ear. I do not transcribe.

I played along to the medley in my in ears with no click track except at 1:54 and 8:26 where the drums stop momentarily.

The details of the tracks are:
0:00 'Stengah' - Nothing (0:00-0:48, 1:43-2:06, 4:20-4:44, 5:16-5:53)
1:54 'Glints Collide' - Nothing (1:11-1:24 x2)
2:21 'Rational Gaze' - Nothing (0:00-0:28, 2:24-3:00)
3:25 'Perpetual Black Second' - Nothing (2:47-3:13) +1 bar freestyle
3:52 'Spasm' - Nothing (2:32-2:46)
4:06 'This Spiteful Snake' - obZen (3:16-3:30)
