Sam Kaplan is a British experimental musician. His obscure works, based on the affection of the unconscious mind, mix noise and music into almost ambiental passages that try to alter the perception of sound. This work, "Interchange", is an step further into deconstructing his sounds into singular elements, as a surgeon slowly opening his way into the sonic marrow.
According to Kaplan, "the idea behind this album is that the first half focusses on the three fundamental elements of music - harmony, noise and rhythm - and in the second half, all three are united." SAVANT is proud to present a important document by one of the record series' most unique talents, Sam Kaplan.

"King Question..." is Elkshow's cut-up masterpiece. Gloriously deconstructive and philosophical, Ellipse ponders and explores human questioning in abstract collages that transcend sound and rhythm. Savant Record Series
Human Food's "First Magnum Opus..." travels from one passage of sound to another into a vanishing state of daydream, like a drug trip or a fever, mixing ambient, musique concrete and noise perfectly. Savant Record Series
