Holy Futuristic: Gorrilaz Record New Album On iPad


As if the craftily creative, animated ensemble, Gorrilaz, weren't technologically advanced and futurist minded enough, they have now set out to be the inaugural musical artists to record an entire album using Apples latest cash gamma, the iPad.

Amidst the woes and weary travels of touring, the supergoup has adopted the true essence of on the go recording, just as a number of other various artists have adapted the tablet computer in aiding to their musical needs. Dj's, instrumentalists, you name it. The iPad is becoming quite the tech savy, go to alternative to actual audio tools.

When speaking on the group's hopes in becoming the first to records such a feat, frontman, Damon Albarn had this to say: I hope Ill be making the first record on an iPad, he told the NME. I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so Ive made it a completely different type of record.

Although being known as somewhat of a techophobe, Albarn has wholistically embraced the idea of a more convenient means of audio recording and engineering, and is thus leading the charge for a new movement that is undeniably on our door step. All that aside, I'm just curious as to how the lead figure of the most technologically minded group ever has a fear of just that, technology. Has he not seen what his band actually is?

Nonetheless, this is a pretty neat concept, and I have no doubts Apple will be eating it up.
