My SIDE PROJECT "https://soundcloud.com/quipmusic/"
for more Calaminus music beyond genre borders.
Calaminus is a non-profit one-man-project from Düsseldorf/Germany producing groove-orientated instrumental music.
The focus is on genres like Funk, Fusion, (Acid/Nu)Jazz and Groove Pop, with diverse ethnic influences of the World Music.
It started 2003 after a decade as a Singer/Songwriter on guitars.
Since then I work on keys with sequencing, plug-ins, samples and loops - sometimes with guitar. Even the music is MIDI-triggered & partly programmed, improvisation & a band sound are essential. The appeal is the link between virtual sound & real human composition. All original tracks - arranged, recorded, mixed & mastered by myself - are licenced under Creative Commons (CC-NC-ND).
I also released 5 albums which can be downloaded for FREE as well:
"Filet de Fonque" (2010)... http://www.archive.org/details/Calaminus-FiletDeFonque/
"On the Trail" (2012)... http://www.archive.org/details/Calaminus-OnTheTrail/
"Grooveyard" (2013)... https://archive.org/details/Calaminus-Grooveyard/
"To Another Place (2014)... http://archive.org/details/Calaminus-Another-Place/
"No Lament" (2015) ... https://archive.org/details/Calaminus-NoLament
For former & further releases you can visit my side project https://soundcloud.com/quipmusic/
which tries to go beyond the Calaminus stuff in a multigenre way.
There you will also find some collected tracks of mine, that aren't represented on this profile anymore & that are going beyond the "usual" groove-forced Calaminus works :-)
If you like my music, spread the word, leave me a comment & share the groove with your friends :-)
If you don't like something, please feel free to criticize constructively...
Don't follow me, if you don't listen & comment my stuff! Cause I won't do that as well.
