If you haven’t been to our events, we describe Metamorph as an immersive experience that utilizes music and live visuals to incubate a shift in perception. We’ll be bringing in additional sound and lighting for this event.
Korridor is in the business of creating passages – both for himself and those who come in contact with his music. With highly acclaimed releases on Hypnus Records, Nordanvind and Northern Electronics over the last few years, Korridor has swiftly become a household name in the European electronic music scene. However, Fabian Kempe is by no means a novice. He has been active within the music scene as a producer under various monikers for over 12 years. The paths have been winding but they all lead up to the defined philosophy of Korridor.The Korridor project started off as an exploration of minimalistic structures but as that rabbit hole started to widen new textures appeared, often in the form of polyrhythms. When these shifting and unpredictable bits and pieces of rhythmical elements began to harmonize with each other, the foundation for Korridor was established. Connecting seemingly conflicting dots on a music sheet and connecting seemingly divided bodies on a dance floor are two sides of the same type of magic. A form of shamanism, more precisely – a “technique of religious ecstasy”, to quote the famed historian of religion, Mircea Eliade. With his drum, the Shaman creates rhythms that open corridors to the spirit world. He brings people together as a tribe, creates altered states of consciousness and induces waves of ecstasy and yearning that affect masses of moving bodies simultaneously. Anyone who has ever lost him or herself on a Korridor dance floor can testify that Fabian Kempe keeps this tradition very much alive. A modern polyrhythmic Shaman that combines darkness with light, mathematical structures with melancholic harmonies and spiritual black holes with the brightest states of awareness.
