Kakafoni is an experimental jazz band who releases their debut album.
In the beginning of the 21st century Gothenburg, Sweden’s Pelle Erikson got the idea that he would like to mix melodic jazz with modern technology. This would involve loop based song with strict rhythm and strong, simple melodies. Songs, based in the jazz tradition, were recorded and after that overdubs, loops and samples were made in after recording editing, computer wise. The musicians got to put their special trademarks on the nearly finished recording.
The music is repeating and something seems to happened all the time . Sometimes it feels like innovative but other times the same scenario repeats.
However it’s an interesting touch.
