Playing the PanKAT: Video and Audio files

Well I think it is time to say "Thank you" to Alternate Mode for this wonderful midi-instrument:

Use the german version for now and scroll down to "Videos"...
Once you get it running the PanKAT is GREAT! :)

Playing the PanKAT: New Video

Yes - the PanGanG is still enjoying the PanKat as part of the steel orchestra. But there are other possibilities to play this fantastic controller: Here we use it to emulate the marimbaphone of the original recording by Liam Teague and Robert Chappell: "For Lack Of Better Words": http://www.calypsonic.de/media/videos/pangang/20100629-forlackofbetterwords.html

This is: CaribBajan http://www.calypsonic.de/media/videos/caribbajan/index.html - a new version of "For Lack Of Better Words", combining Bajan from Ukraine with pans form the Caribbean and the PanKAT from Chicopee.
Right now we are working on a new way to play the PanKat using fingers instead of sticks. The note layout allows very creative voicings.
One day later:

I think this is worth being heard and seen: http://www.calypsonic.de/media/videos/pangang/20110911-hansatheaterdohoerde-iseeaysha.html
Thanks to Mario for the PanKAT!
