Featuring, to paraphrase DJZ’s Josh Bennett, “high-tech b-boys (and) sick dance moves encapsulated in a futuristic world where sound waves and body movements generate various visual phenomena”, the video is a slick production synced to Savant’s trademark bass-heavy beats and symphonic harpsichord composition.
Norwegian musician and producer Aleksander Vinter, aka Savant, has a long history experimenting with sound, from playing a Yamaha electric organ at age 4 to composing music with such computer programs as eJay and FastTracker. With no formal musical training, he discovered an uncanny ability to spontaneously imagine and then compose original music, oftentimes writing and finishing up to an astonishing 3 songs per day; his personal catalog exceeds 10,000, and he’s only 25. As impressive as his output is his diversity, his Soundcloud page filled with 99 unique songs, from the classical ‘_Obscurite_’ to the 70’s soundtrack styles of ‘The Christopher Walkens’ to the electro-metal ‘Overkill’and super-bass-filled, Glitch Hop ‘Shake the Room’. Much of his music is created using unlikely instruments and production; ‘Sledgehammer’, other than the drums, is created using a vintage monophonic Moog Voyageur. His incredible talent, energy, focus, and musical skill has made Savantan artist that transcends genres
