In the loop

The Academic use Facebook Live's video delay to make a mesmerising music video for their song Bear Claws.
"We rearranged each instrument on “Bear Claws” to fit Facebook Live’s delay, with each loop getting more complex, adding instruments, rhythms, and melodies. Additionally, by projecting the video live from a soundstage we created an infinite tunnel consisting of all the previously recorded loops."
via Kottke. More looping previously on Metafilter: 1 2 3 4 5

I have watched this a few times because it is so delightful.

I am curious - is the audio also being looped through facebook live? Because I don't hear the audio artifacts that I would expect from streaming audio. I'd like to hear that version, too.
