Kafari – Knockturnes

This album is dedicated to the Bill Evans trio. (and its many iterations)

‘Knockturnes’ is the culmination of a sampling experiment that began on a snowy night in Maine in December 2014. Each song on the album is based on a single two to four-second repeating loop taken from a Bill Evans trio recording. As the loop for a particular song cycles continuously, a keyboard controller is 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.
