His instruments are keys and buttons, whether synth keys, computer keyboard keys or drum machine buttons – these are the devices that encourage Kleemar to start making his own music (in the year 2000). After six years of active work, Kleemar has played numerous club and festival gigs, he has collaborated with a world renown choreographer Matjaž Farič and a young theatre director Luka Škof (individually with each, of course). The music on Kleemar's recordings sounds precise, clear and very detailed. Kleemar's music is embellished with his excellent sense for rhythm, ear-caressing melodies, his innovative and unique feeling for recycling something that's been heard before into his very own >Kleemarian< audio image. But still: Kleemar live, is a different thing altogether! A sort of a »Mr. Hyde« variant of his songs, self-remixing performed live.
What sets Kleemar apart from his 'genre colleagues' is that he doesn't go on stage with a laptop, but with a couple of synths, a Rhodes electric piano, a melodica, guitar, bass, a drum machine and drums. The Kleemar live act consists of Saso Benko (Psycho-Path, ex-Manul), David Halb (Sphericube), Jernej Savel (Psycho-Path, Rae Mikkelson Band) and the man – Kleemar himself. A few facts: - Kleemar is pronounced as »clay-marr« - Kleemar's birth name is Matej Končan - Tito dies a few weeks after Kleemar is born (it is said that there just isn't enough room for the both of them) - he stumbles upon a nearly destroyed cult instrument, Fender Rhodes electric piano and restores it himself - he is a walking encyclopedia of contemporary, old and even older electronic music PNC, 2004-2005-2006 Read more on Last.fm.
