Amongst Giants is an instrumental/electronic project by composer Matthias Hacksteiner based in Innsbruck, Austria and released his self-titled debut record 2008.
His blend of electronica, classical music, pop, rock, jazz and soundtracks is dedicated to the concept of "attraction of opposites“ and it's musical translation: Be it super clean, high-tech synth sounds and the inaccuracy of acoustics instruments, perfect sequencer rhythms and the imperfections of human musicians, noise and music or simply loud and quiet.
Strongly drawn to the electronic music of the 90s and its many different styles, Amongst Giants set out to incorporate more unusual instrument combinations and new musical ideas to take this genre a step further: Not sole relying on sounds, but also including original compositional techniques.
Mutual Understanding, released in 2018, was recorded with nine musicians which lead to an expansive range of possibilities and new musical ideas. The audience is rewarded with a varied and diversified record, that never loses sight of the emotional experience of listening to a full-length album.
Amongst Giants tells a story about the possibilities between electronic synth sounds and acoustic instruments, popular music and avant-garde, technological precision and the beauty of human imperfection, urban lifestyle and experiencing nature.
