Surrogate Sibling is the solo studio project of composer/multi-instrumentalist Dieter Dolezel.
Being an already established, multiple award-winning classically trained composer, originally active in the field of contemporary classical music, his interests gradually developed over time towards a more inclusive approach to music making, one that would incorporate the multitude of musical influences that accompanied him since his earliest days of being a musician. As a consequence, the vision to found a music project arose, that would be an open playing field of free musical expression between the poles of classical and popular culture, yet devoid of any mainstream trends and hence, Surrogate Sibling was born.
From early on, a rather unique feature of the project was the notion of featuring various collaborating musicians with vastly different musical backgrounds, that would also possibly change with each new album. The notable first lineup featured Carlos Cipa on piano and New York based Sirius Quartet as collaborators.
The music is deliberately neither strictly classical nor pop, oscillating freely between intricately crafted, chamber-music-like string and piano arrangements and contemporary electronic beats and soundscapes in varying degrees, mixing it up with the occasional electric guitar part, performed by Dolezel himself, incorporating a wide range of influences spanning from Reichian minimalism to Autechre's abstract electronica and even a little dose of Ravel.
