On White Noise Manipulation: Simple Techniques in Ableton Live, Demonstrated in Real-Time

A number of people have asked me to demonstrate or speak about how I made Kill Your Apathy, which is a release that is made of only manipulated white noise.

I have made a real-time screencast / screengrab (don't worry, I don't actually say anything) that goes through my process from creating the white noise to ending up with a basic sort of loop. Much of the time is dedicated to sound design in Ableton Live using the Simpler device.

Although I don't say anything, I thought it might be of use to people starting out with Ableton Live, and wanting to get into the Simpler. No rocket science, just good, clean sound fun.
