More Information

Xperimentus is a series of experimental and avant-garde compositions by Krispen Hartung and 13 other musicians from the international Looper’s Delight discussion group and community. Each composition is a duo composed virtually and in collaboration over the internet by Hartung and these amazingly creative and awe-inspiring musicians from the U.S., Belgium, Norway, Italy, UK, and Germany. Xperimentus is a unique blend of personalities and multiple playing styles that fuses electronic, experimental, and avant-garde music into a delightful collage of music art.
"Magic Cosmic Sounds - With Xperimentus, Krispen Hartung has incredibly woven together a disparate array of cosmic sounds into one magic carpet sure to take you on a ride through the astral plane. This collaboration of global musicians is surprisingly cohesive considering the method in which it was created, mostly through virtual cooperation with 13 other musicians. The songs on this disc seem to arise from the ether and spill forth a delicious series of notes that mesmerize the listener then slip back suddenly into the dimension from which they came." - Michelle Morris (Writer and Photographer)
