Christopher Møklebust Sknail's futuristic escapade into jazz begins here with Glitch Jazz. It's a noir album for the cybernetic private detective. Each and every blip devoid of free will - a systemic symmetry. Though, it cannot quite contain the themes of improve spread out the whole and back again. Favorite track: The Snail Part. 2.

    SKNAIL is a Swiss composer and music producer.
    In collaboration with 6 professional jazz and classical musicians, he has reinvented the jazz band by replacing the drummer with the sighs of broken printers, the creaking of worn out machinery, computer crashes and other sounds generated by mistreated machines.
    SKNAIL composes and arranges everything, and records the confrontations between musicians and machines. He will let both sides improvise and experiment with the cutting-edge. These unbridled fights, included in the first album, called “glitch jazz”, have lead to totally new and amazing sounds different from what we have heard until now, varying from jazz and free jazz to contemporary and minimal electro to glitch electronica music.
    All the musicians take part in a duel against a machine without ever meeting one another !
