Janek, compositeur et artiste sonore, propose un […]

The music […]

“Double Exposure” reviewed by D-Side

Artiste versatile, le Britannique Janek Schaefer évolue en permanence sur la ligne entre la création musicale et le monde de l’art, son oeuvre pouvant tout autant être destinée à une publication « traditionnelle », qu’à accompagner une installation in-situ. Dans ces contextes très variés, Schaefer n’hésite en outre pas à s’adapter aux circonstances et au […]

“Double Exposure” reviewed by Peter Wullen

Excellent new concept double album by Janek Schaefer on Crónica. His best to date. 12 commissioned pieces that range from dreamy to truly hairraising. ‘Asleep at the weel…’ is absolutely fabulous. An installation consisting of ghost cars & in-car soundtracks. The 20 minute piece on the album documents the dangers of overconsumption & overuse of […]
