Kutiman Reveals New Project, Off The Grid
The epic instrumental music piece was inspired by the diverse musicians found in the depths of YouTube.
Celebrated musician and video artist Kutiman first launched Thru-You 6 years ago, which saw the artist slicing and combining existing musical elements of unrelated musicians on YouTube to great acclaim. Following up Thru-You and his Thru-You-Tooproject in 2014, Kutiman has revealed his new audio/visual creation Off The Grid, an ode to Jazz music and its exquisite colorfulness.
The multi-disciplinary artist presents the project as a long running album with accompanying visual elements that show a wide range of international free jazz musicians playing and improvising together. Overall, Kutiman’s goal of the project is to explore the concepts of “expanded time, musical complexity and intricate layering.”
