Kazemat presents cut and paste composers who make enchanting, alchemistic and cinematic music that is constructed out of samples and sounds that are put in another context.
In the past many composers have used existing material in their work, like folk melodies, quotations or stylistic elements from other composers. In the twentieth century composers started to use recorded sounds and in hiphop sometimes even entire songs are made out of samples of existing music.
This tradition is continuing with the ever growing possibilities technology has to offer. There are new ways to create music in a very personal, organic and intuitive way. Serious and real new instruments can be made and used to explore and express interesting and daring musical ideas. Many new artists are finding their own voice and are making beautiful, cinematic and colorful music that is often obscured from the music loving audience.
Kazemat uncovers this music on 180 grams vinyl.
