AV Performance
We create our own characters. Thats what makes every human an artist. Constantly evolving through the re-imagination of the self. Karakter Live is an A/V performance appealing to the audience’s sensory and visual experience, introduces different characters and themes from the artists musical world.

The performance is a study of abstraction that is influenced by
a number of artists (Foodman, Flying Lotus, Max Cooper) for whom sound design and colour inspire thoughts and dreams; different and independent from the nature of their genres.

A sound palette, aiming not to describe or narrate a specific situation, but more to produce sensations and emotions, will be composed using a sequence of instruments, tones and tempo. Showcasing a conversation between eastern authenticity and western production styles using lush and ambient sounds blended to MPC sampling
techniques.

Visual images accompanying the music are inspired from complexities of imagination and daydreaming. Original animations from the artist are
performed and manipulated on stage by reactive MIDI and
motion controllers. After the earlier demos from "Create Your Karakter" EP got discovered and supported by BBC Introducing Radio Show, the record was signed and released from Amsterdam label Plaktone Records.

Currently Karakter is crafting a new EP and building his live
show for tour, as a part of his music technology and innovation study in Berklee Valencia.

ABOUT ME

We create our own characters. Thats what makes every human an artist. Constantly evolving through the re-imagination of the self. On his debut EP, the 21 year old artist Karakter tells the sonical stories of three characters reflected from his personal world. Karakter’s sound is future cinematic, experimental and old school.

A conversation between eastern storytelling and western production styles using lush and ambient sounds blended to MPC sampling techniques. After the earlier demo versions of all three tracks from "Create Your Karakter" EP got discovery and support by BBC Introducing Radio Show, he signed to Amsterdam based label Plaktone Records.

First track “Grass” is a psychedelic electronica, taking inspiration and recorded samples from natural habitats.

Second track “Chimp Up” is a funky old school beat, taking inspiration from 90’s hip hop and monkeys.

Third track “Digital Self” is an experimentation of synths and drums, taking the EP to a darker colour.

Currently Karakter is a Berklee Valencia student of music technology and innovation.
