“I’m real interested in film and video game scores,” “It’s a huge part of my inspiration.” A self-confessed cinephile, this close adoration of film led Evan Klar to a process that worked for him – like a visual score, it’s not uncommon for one of his songs to start with a field recording.
“I think having a base plate of sound design, such as a recording of a rainforest instantly creates a scene,” he says. “Sometimes the recordings I collect stay in the song, other times they falls away.” A great example of this “Get Up”, a visceral and heartstring-pulling song that, if you listen closely, features the sounds of whales singing underwater.
A great example of Evan Klar’s skill with soundscapes is his first single, “Sleep”, which opens with rainfall, breathing and an atmospheric groove. Not only is this the track that introduces the world to Evan Klar and his approach, but it’s also the opener to his debut album, and for a reason.

It’s important to note that Evan Klar is about connection, not self-communication. It’s music that aches for universal truths and is written as such. Music based on personal experience, yet with Evan Klar removed just enough to allow for interpretation.
