The Kaossilator Orchestra

Post by FuzzyWobble » Thu Feb 17, 2011 1:00 pm

i had this idea, to conduct a kaossilator orchestra.
just seeing if there is anyone out there interested in being apart of this.

for those of you who dont know what a kaossilator is, here is a vid i made

how it works?

if you have a kaossilator you can join the orchestra. i have an 8 channel korg zero8 mixer so we can plug up to eight people in at one time. the conductor, mans the mixer and is continuously mixing the sounds while the orchestra (of kaossilators) is contributing new beats and sounds to the perpetual chaotic mix. the conductor can smaple each of the eight channels separately, see what sounds he wants to include, mix in/out new sounds, add effects etc. it could be alot of fun. we could take turns conducting and contributing different sections to the music (bass/percussion etc). it would just be one big chaotic kaossilator jam sess. midi keyboards would be encourage to control the notes on your kaossilator.

let me know what you think.

I think some earplugs would be in order.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

Be sure to invite Casey and her Omnichord. You know, for variety and root notes.

Wow, that would be really cool. I don't own a Kaossilator and probably can't afford one but I would come by to hear the Kaossilator-fuk. :) Maybe have the orchestra be the Super-Unusual Instrument Orchestra (SUIO) and then you could have the Omnichord, a Theremin, weird stuff. :)
