Played ‘no-input’ Kaoss pad in the Poetry Open-Jack last night. After finding that it was too dark to see the screen on the game-boy (running LittleSoundDJ) I worked on using my thumb on the exposed 3.5mm jack to generate noise for the Kaoss pad to use. This technique is something I’ve also been working on during the QUBE impov sessions. One satisfying outcome is that by the end of the improvisation everyone had tuned to the key of the Kaosspad (well, whatever resonance was being produced when maxing out the filter). Must find out what that note is!
