Recording A Room In A Room 20 Times - Audio Inception

YouTuber LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER, whom I shall optimistically call Liam because no one has ever looked more like a Liam, cranks up the pretension to 11 in his latest musical experiment! Inspired by Alvin Lucier's 1981 album I am sitting in a room, Liam records himself and a Linn Drum in a room. He then records that recording from the other side of the room. Then repeats that process until he has re-recorded the same room's reverb 20 times.

This may seem almost entirely nonsensical, but it is an educational look at the physics of reverb. He includes an oscilloscope so you can watch as the recording degrades into pure sine waves. This same effect would be accomplished much easier if Liam asked his titular mum for a computer, and just ran 20 reverb VST/AUs in series at 100% wet.

Fuck, I just realized his name is Sam. I'm disappointed.
We may have different expectations about Liam, erm, Sam. Sounds to me like he’s finding his space.
Some of his projects are really out there. And that has become his “branding”. But he may also be “teaching by learning”. He’s exploring stuff for himself but, maybe without noticing, he’s doing the equivalent of 1970s era educational videos.
Which is all fine. We need people like this who aren’t too jaded or cynical.
I agree. I give him shit, but I'm glad he's doing what he's doing. I have a couple of minor quibbles with his performance (he looks like an 1980's BritCom character escaped, and I think the whole "DAWless/CPUless" movement is counter-productive) but I watch every single one of his videos and hope he continues.
