Fjazz releases new EP album ‘My Days to Count’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The eclectic composer and performer of music known as Fjazz has released his latest EP record, titled, “My Days to Count.” The record is comprised of eight original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 9 minutes. Like Fjazz’s other, previous quality releases, his “My Days to Count” EP has been released on the acclaimed Scotch and Murder music record label.

 

Fjazz’s new extended-play record stands as the soundtrack to the celebrated short film, “My Days to Count,” from Studio2G in New York City. The film was directed by Stephanie De Latour, Antonio Padovan, and Saarah Zebede. It is Fjazz’s most significant official release since his collaboration with Krycheck, “Live at Tammany Hall, Vol. 2.”

 

Fjazz’s EP blends his various music backgrounds into an instrumental mix that includes piano and strings, as well as his own roots in the electronica music scene. The resulting effect is both ambient and crisp, often cold, and mostly heard in hues of gray and blue.

 

This is absolutely fitting for the themes and atmospheres of the short film, the public Kickstarter page for which declares it to be a story of an “encounter of two strangers in the aftermath of loss [which] uncovers an inexplicable connection.” The Kickstarter project for the “My Days to Count Film” ended on 25 October 2012 with smashing success. Of the requested $3,000 in necessary funds to complete the film, its Kickstarter campaign finished with $3,986 having been donated, an excess of nearly 33%.

 

Fjazz’s soundtrack adds weight, complexity and class to an already sharp and tasteful short film. His music is at once reminiscent of classical music by Beethoven and of the background scores to movies from the days of old silent cinema.

 

Fjazz is most recognized for his work in electronica and EDM, though his considerable talents often bring him across genres, and his digital compositions usually feature many components of categories outside the traditional house music subgenre.

 

The “My Days to Count” soundtrack by Fjazz is available online worldwide beginning 3 January 2014.

Krychek and Fjazz release SP record ‘Live at Tammany Hall Vol. 2’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The electronic jazz duo known as Krychek and Fjazz have released their latest SP record, titled, “Live and Tammany Hall Vol. 2.” The release is comprised of a single and B-side, “Fhloston Paradise” and “Girl Station,” respectively. They have been published on the Scotch and Murder Music records label. The recordings were taken during a highly publicized and well-attended live performance at the famous Tammany Hall in New York City, and have received broad critical and fan acclaim since their unveiling. An ingenious, eclectic and intellectual combination of jazz and electronic dance music with ambient undertones, “Live and Tammany Hall Vol. 2” by Krychek and Fjazz represents some of the most intriguing electronic music produced this year.

 

New York’s Scotch and Murder Music record label was co-founded by Krychek, himself. His own music is marked by live instrumentation gleaned from his classical training as a player, as well as by his profound experience with synthetic sound and tone. He is widely recognized as a DJ and music producer, particularly in the realm of EDM music. His melodic musical style falls into the house music category, though his sweeping, fugue-like builds and strong background undercurrents often recall those of Hollywood film scores and soundtracks.

 

Fjazz is the professional name of Fernando Arruda, who obtained a rare 0-1 artist’s visa from the United States government to remain in the USA while making his music. The visa is only awarded to players who are deemed powerfully influential in and beneficial to the US music scene as a whole. Primarily a saxophone player, Fjazz is also capable at flute, clarinet, piano, guitar, and the EWI4000s (a synth clarinet with eight octaves). Like Krychek, he is also a music producer who merges live acoustic performances with high-quality, precision electronic music in New York City. His records are known for challenging the boundaries between improvised acoustic jazz and sound-designed electronic music.

 

“Live at Tammany Hall Vol. 2” by Krychek and Fjazz on Scotch and Murder Music is available online worldwide beginning 7 November 2013.
