canvas is the empty surface on which moods and music are carefully placed to create electronic landscapes with some jazzy roughness and an ambient touch. cutup fragmented electronic beats play against the warmth of double bass, strings and fender rhodes. canvas is the paris based french-german trio sam rouanet (fr), phil stumpf (ger) and james sindatri (fr).
canvas live setup:
sam rouanet: guitar, synths
phil stumpf: synths, machines
james sindatry: double bass drums, rhodes
jacques rouanet: rhodes
ghislain rivera: drums
„...electronically tinged Jazz, abstract, atmospheric, dreamlike, melancholic. Canvas convinces with their calm and slowness. (…) A musical vision that stands at the same level as Tortoise, Peace Orchestra, Carl Craig or the output of Warp.
In one word: beautiful !” TRAX Magazine, (August 2003)
“…Buona Modulazione is a damn great album showing the genre of electronica in a whole new light. One of the most surprising new labels of the moment.”
