Klare's 1000, Jan

Klare's 1000, Jan: (shoe) (Red Toucan)
Label: Red Toucan    
Released in: Canada    

"Many years ago I heard a quote (I can't remember by which musician), that made a lasting impression on me. I don't remember it literally, but it encapsulated the artitst's desire to create something as valuable and useful to the listener as for example the work of a shoemaker, a craftsman.

Every so often this thought comes to mind - how could I work on music, so it would become as palpable as an object, made from such as leather or wood?

During mixdown of this CD, I converted working names for tunes to more "proper" titles, as is my routine at this stage. Here it occured to me, that the music of "1000" expresses this inner urge, to create a sonic sculpture, music that can almost be touched!

We don't aim for a defined product when we play in this group, but to me the acoustic results gain a tangible quality - it's as if, for real, I could reach out and grasp the sounds, take them for a walk with me."-Jan Klare, december 2011
