Rotoscope - Carpet Illusions [2001-08-02]

In association with Jester Records we present a new Rotoscope track from their record 'Great Curves'. If you are looking for experimental jazzy trip-hop, look not further.Get it at Jester Records.

Rotoscope was formed by Andreas Mjøs on the occasion of a concert held under the Norwegian Ultima festival (international festival of contemporary music), autumn 1999. This concert aimed to reconcile the current technological club-music with the more experimental facets of contemporary music. Since then Rotoscope have performed among others at Molde international jazz-festival, enhanced the line-up with vocals, and moved towards a hybrid between contemporary music, pop and jazz with strong references to the growing experimental electronic milieu found for instance around British labels Warp and Ninja Tune.

On their debut, Great Curves, Rotoscope has with producer, Jørgen Træen, remixed themselves without any chance of you ever getting to hear the original songs.
