Knockturnes by Kafari

Kafari’s Knockturnes LP has a very straightforward technical concept in mind: each song is based on a single repeating loop taken from a Bill Evans trio recording. As the loop for a particular song cycles continuously, a keyboard controller was used to alter the register of the loop in real time – this changes not only the pitch of the loop but the tempo as well, giving rise to a new chord progression,  melody, and time signature within the modulated sample.

The album reminds us of blissful night drives, moments of wonder underneath clear skies, and late nights witnessing the city skyline. It’s available to download by naming your own price, so go give it a download!
