Biography

Collin M. Palmer aka Calmer produces music with a mix of seemingly disparate frenetic beats and lucid analog melodies. Pulling from a strong background in composition, Calmer shows a jazzy sensibility that grows at turns into spastic avant-garde. Calmer started playing music at the age of five when he began to study percussion. He developed as a drummer in his teens while simultaneously learning piano from his mother and began writing music by exploring electronic sounds with samplers and drum machines. This transformed into movement toward computer recordings of instrumentals and organic sounds . His ability to intertwine complex programming and instruments has developed over the years. Calmer’s own description of the music genre he falls into is “futurist jazz fusion” and his live act combines live drumming, traditional instruments and a laptop. He draws inspiration from Miles Davis, Dave Holland, Tony Williams and Billy Coblem to form a new sound in which he explores depths of complex arrangements and smooth bridges. Although the Moodgadget records recording artist’s music has been impacted by great jazz minds he doesn’t imitate their sound as much as he appropriates it, finding his own way through a futuristic style orgy of piano and drum, drum and computer.

Calmer was released a 4 track EP ON MOODGADGET RECORDS January 20th 2009.

Calmer is currently in the studio finishing up his follow up LP to Past is Present ,slated to be out in mid 2013.
