Watch The Live Looping Wonder Of Bayonne

The Austin-based electronic composer Roger Sellers, who writes and records as Bayonne, makes live looping look like an endurance sport. On his latest video, for the earworm "Appeals," he breathlessly dances, lays down tracks and darts between a tangle of mixers and drums in a series of perfectly orchestrated maneuvers. The setting is simple: a dark room with beautifully designed, geometric lights framing Bayonne's performance.

"'Appeals' takes the most work involved in playing live because there are more simultaneous loops brought in and out than any other song in my set," Sellers tells NPR Music via email. "The video speaks well for the track, both for the live performance and the song in general. The color scheme matches what I had in mind for a live video and the projection mapping is on point with the movement of the loops."

"Appeals" is from Bayonne's debut full-length, Primitives, due out March 25 on Mom And Pop Records.
