“The Yellow Album” is the first full-length album produced and performed entirely on the Korg Kaossilator device. No other effects, EQ or sounds were added. The audio was digitally recorded directly off the unit and the only external editing performed involved simple volume balancing. The musical challenge was to attempt to make the two-bar loop limitation of the on-board phrase recorder sound less repetitious by playing the touchpad live, solo-style, over the loops during the recording.
If you, like me have been wanting to get and idea of what the kaossilator could do… here is the answer, Gary Kibler’s Yellow Album. You can hear the whole thing in the embedded player (after the jump). More on his reverb nation page and on CDM.
Not bad for a demo of what this machine can do. I may just pick up a kaossilator - sooner, rather than later.
