Submissions from this past week seem to represent one or two genres, composition and instrumental. As I have mentioned in the past, instrumental work tends to be my favorite and unfortunately it seems to be a genre that doesn't secure enough traction. 'Nough said and with one more plug on to the music. As always email us your submissions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Oskar SchusterStarting piano at the age of 6 and beginning to compose at the age of 14, the ability of Oskar Schuster to weave fantasized dreamscapes comes as no surprise. In more recent years Schuster studied musicology in Munich before packing up his bags for Berlin in hopes of becoming a musician. Since then he has released Dear Utopia in September 2011 and is currently working on his second full-length entitled, Sneuuwland. Schuster writes,
"I like to call my songs musical fairytales as they create a surreal, magical atmosphere with the combination of piano, glockenspiel, music box, accordion and beats made of noises from old typewriters, cameras, radios etc"In addition to the aural, Schuster fosters a love for the visual. Truly a renaissance man, Schuster records and mixes his music in addition to producing all of the cover art and videos. Check out his photo blog. If you want Schuster to keep on keeping on, support him (You can even buy sheet music) or at Sellaband.
