Plays Jazz for Alien Individuals Cover art

Exit Kanon is the solo project of one the Famlende Forsøk / The Smell of Incense family member, ChrispH. ChrispH has been working on and off on this music since 1985, only playing excerpts for his close friends. Today the world can hear this labor of love in its entirety. This set of 11 twisted instrumental pieces ranges from the pseudo-Arabic (“Varanasi”) through analog atmospheric space (“It’s Cold out Here” and “Via Nebula”) to weird jazz (“Jazz Trip”). Jazz for Alien Individuals is quite a collection of musical styles, though it does not encompass all genres. ChrispH’s music is contemplative and somewhat relaxing, the perfect lounge music for sipping Tranya on Rigel 7.
