MUSICAL FACTS AND HISTORY OF THE CALIGARIS
‘The Caligaris’ are primarily filmmakers. However these artists have music in their DNA.
Swaddled in sound from birth they return to it like Will o the Wisp hypnotised by the light. The Caligaris songs are written and recorded from their home, a boat on the river Thames.
Sounds from this remote location often audible in the background of their recordings transport you directly to them. Although both classically trained they submit to their infatuation with simplicity. As they continue this rebellion they tend to choose amplification electronics and distortion to magnify emotional intent.
Most of the tracks are drawn at a computer, a piano or a guitar and are then painted in with their musical collaborators.
Declaring In their own words “It feels like our songs are written subconsciously. Our lifestyle feeds our creativity which feeds our daily life’”.
When they are not making film or music, The Caligaris can be found in hysterics playing chess or doodling around.
