The idea that I have to do a TED style talk was a bit frightening at first. I couldn’t for the life of me think of anything to say, and even now I still only have vague ideas. So I began to surf the web and watch other TED talks for inspiration and I came across this particular one.
I got a lot of different ideas from this video, plus I like the song. But one thing that was bothering me was whether or not I was going to try and perform when I did my TED talk, and how I would go about doing this if there were more than just one instrumental part. What she seemed to do was play the track into the microphone and then just continue the track through speakers afterwards, and as she built each individual track she eventually had a bunch of different tracks going at once. So this is one possible way of doing my talk.
