Akufen techniques

Hello, someone can give me some tips on how to achieve this type of effect, that sounds like shifting from radio station to another, in theory for me sounds like he's using micro samples, then uses "random" effect on these samples.... someone has any other way of doing it? or tips to achieve similar effect with chords and etc...?

Thanks!!

He probably does it exactly how you said, save for using the random feature. He microsamples then pastes together to suit his needs. Given the result, the man is a genius.

I'm pretty sure he uses fruity loops - I think one of the most inspirational records ever pressed imo he made on fruity loops... Richie reincarnations of his concept releases.

Not sure what you're referring to? String? or Glitch one shots?

Seems similar to some old school mirco glitch stuff 2002 era-ish.

methoical layered one shot samples / could apply with strings too.
