Multi-instrumentalist Kevin Micka executed an incredible concept. His project, Animal Hospital, is a one-man show where he performs elaborate and chilling soundscapes by playing an array of instruments then looping, layering and mixing everything by himself live.

He kind of ‘unplugged’ the whole thing and replaced the effects and pedals by assembling a 30 piece ensemble to recreate the layering and looping for him. On top of that he put the band in a large circle with the crowd in the middle. Wish I could have been there. The promo video alone gives me chills.
