The DJANK YUCCA Performance System utilizes a production technique that DY has coined audio-quilting. Audio-quilting involves aspects of DJing – threading together short musical fragments into a larger, cohesive musical journey – and yet, audio- quilting involves production along with performance. Rather than focusing on producing complete tracks, DY focused on creating segments that would fit together and move the narrative forward. This catalogue of segments can be arranged in a variety of sequences in Ableton Live’s session mode, all the while maintaining cohesion and momentum.
