The next release from internationally award-nominated composer and producer Jade Kerber. On the back of the widespread recognition received by the release of his debut album SQUARE ONE, Jade recorded a series of compositions throughout 2016. The final result: HAPTICA. A collection of works inspired and influenced by a more hands-on approach to the album process, incorporating composition, performance and technology all at once to create a unique and distinctive style and sound.
Reprising their roles from SQUARE ONE are artists Darryn Farrugia (Drums) and Phil Turcio (Keys), alongside key performances from Tom Sly (Trumpet), Darrin Archer (Keys) and Jason Rodi (Guitar). HAPTICA explores a more electronic, synthesised and experimental approach to Contemporary Jazz through the integration of technology into the entire album process. From using revolutionary new instruments in the recording process through to innovative production techniques, HAPTICA is an EP that is part Jazz, and part something else entirely.
