:: About

Composer and drummer Mike St-Jean together with electronic artist and filmographer Math Rosen join forces in ProJect, a collaboration that presents jazz-meets-electronic atmospheres and grooves in a new light, creating an innovative sound unlike any other this country has to offer. The resulting 5 song ep Alchemist is a strong and impressive debut full of subtle rhythms, lush arrangements and infectious moments where keys, double bass & drums explore dynamic, tonal and energetic possibilities founded on digital samples & loops; this digital element is taken a step further with the addition of an interactive laptop Instrumentalist, remixing live bass, keys, guitar and drum feeds back into the mix, bringing the potential of the modern jazz band to a new level.

:: Reviews

4.5 out of 5! Think Tortoise, Four Tet, or maybe even Final Fantasy, and you're getting there. But to say ProJect sound a lot like any of these acts, or anything else out there, doesn't quite get to the heart of this compelling and promising collaboration. -

A solid addition to any musical library that already includes the likes of Cinematic Orchestra, Cobblestone or Tom Middleton. The worst thing about this disc is that it’s so damn short. - Monday Magazine

4 Out of 5! Electronica for a universal audience. Soothing sample-and-loop-laden grooves and dream-inducing keyboards. - TV Week Magazine
