The Brutalist School is the brain child of ex-dalek member Hsi-Chang Lin who, alongside a small cast of vocalists, create music that sounds like the soundtrack to a familiar film you haven’t seen.

As a member of dalek, Hsi-Chang Lin bent the genre of hip hop almost to its breaking point, earning the respect of such avant garde luminaries as Mike Patton, The Sofa Surfers, Techno Animal and Faust (with whom he helped record the 2005 album “Derbe Respekt Alder.”).

To become The Brutalist School, Hsi-Chang Lin stepped from behind the turntables and into a small studio where he could explore and play all of the instruments heard on the recordings.

The Brutalist School fits no categories and adheres to no formulas; but, there are hints of the ambient textures of Aphex Twin, the occasional moodiness of Portishead and Massive Attack, the dissonance of Penderezcki, lush arrangements of Angelo Badalamenti or David Sylvain all with a newly found pop sensibility.
